Grassroots Hillsboro

¿A Usted le gusta pasar el tiempo afuera y conocer gente nueva? ¡Entonces Grassroots Hillsboro es para ti! Grassroots es un nuevo programa diseñado para unir a la comunidad por medio de proyectos que ayuden a mantener nuestros parques limpios y bellos. Nos reunimos una vez al mes en parques diferentes y los participantes reciben una playera, botanas, y agua. Este es un programa bilingüe y para personas de todas las edades.

Do you enjoy the outdoors and meeting new people? Grassroots Hillsboro keeps the community engaged and keeps our parks healthy and beautiful. Gather once a month at a different park to help enhance the habitat or to beautify the park. T-shirts, snacks and water are provided for volunteers. Instruction is provided in both English and Spanish.
