Citywide Beautification Opportunities
The City Beautification committee developed an ongoing comprehensive plan to help keep Moorhead  clean and beautiful by involving our community volunteers to adopt various areas throughout the city.

Volunteers can participate in the beautification program in one or two ways.  Adopt an area for the season or if time does not allow this, we always welcome one time groups to serve as groups either large or small, as families or as individuals. There are always clean up needs in the city, so we can customize your volunteer experience to what best fits your schedule.  If you are interested, please contact the Moorhead Parks and Recreation Volunteer Coordinator at 218.299.5296.

Areas listed on maps below in orange are in need of adoption and areas in black are currently adopted by community groups, individuals or families.

Thank you to all the volunteers that have helped with the beautification program!
