Volunteer for Shady Street Park service project

a person standing next to a treeAUM’s Experiential Education and Engagement Center (EEEC) has organized volunteer days for university students and employees to help prepare Montgomery’s Shady Street Trailhead Park for public use.

The park is central to efforts to revitalize neglected areas in North Montgomery. Previous workdays have focused on invasive plant and debris removal. Upcoming volunteer dates will be Friday, Oct. 27, and Friday, Nov. 17. Volunteers will meet at Taylor Center, leaving campus at 9 a.m. and returning at 12:30 p.m. each day. Participants should bring water and wear close-toed shoes.

Since 2020, AUM has partnered with Montgomery’s Office of Economic and Community Development on projects at the park. Most recently, AUM students designed signage and “swag” for the park while other students have conducted interviews of former residents about the park’s history and development along the river.
