The Town of Cochrane is helping local groups earn $300.
Local groups, teams and charitable organizations can apply to pull weeds in a Town park and help reduce invasive species in Town. After successful completion of the weed pull, the Town will donate $300 to the group.
The Town of Cochrane provides training and bags to remove material.
Groups must be:
• based in Cochrane and have more than 50% of active members residing in Cochrane
• be an accredited and legitimate organization
Groups must provide:
• description of how the donation will benefit their group
• three options for dates when the group is available for 2 hours (between July and September, Monday-Friday, with a start time 9 am-2 pm)
• at least 12 volunteers (certain age restriction apply)
Once a group’s application is approved, they meet with a Town of Cochrane Parks representative at the specified time and location for training.
