Amarillo Zoo hosting Thompson Park cleanup event

AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - The Amarillo Zoo is hosting a clean up of the creek and shoreline around Thompson Park lakes this weekend.

On Saturday, April 27, the community is invited to help keep the park looking nice and safe for wildlife and visitors.

Last year, volunteers collected more than one ton of trash.

The event will take place from 9:00 a.m. until Noon, and volunteers will meet at the Amarillo Zoo.

If you are interested in volunteering, you should bring a sturdy pair of work gloves and dress appropriately for outside work.

After the clean up, a hot dog cookout will follow the clean up at the Amarillo Zoo.

All volunteers will need to sign a volunteer service agreement.

Volunteers should RSVP to the Amarillo Zoo at (806) 381-7911.

Join us this Saturday from 9am-Noon for our annual Thompson Creek and Lake Clean Up Day. Make a difference for wildlife...
