Meet us at the SW entrance to Volunteer Park - at the staircase across the street from 1065 E. Prospect St. There will be food and drinks provided there! Also, masks are required there to help reduce the ongoing spread of COVID-19 and help us get back to our regular lives ASAP.

This project is being done in tribute to Doug Bayley, co-founder of Volunteer Park Trust and the visionary who conceived of this beautiful and impressive swath of yellow returning permanently every spring. Flowering bulbs—and daffodils in particular—have long been a component in historic Olmsted-designed landscapes across the country and provide a welcome burst of bright, seasonal color.
Bring your gardening gloves and mask. We will provide tools, bulbs, free coffee & donuts, and water.
Stay for all or part of this event. Groups are encouraged - create a volunteer team of your co-workers or friends.
