Volunteer with Parks
The Parks, Recreation and Trails Advisory Board hosts a number of park cleanup and trail improvement events throughout the city. See below announcements for information on the next event.
One way to volunteer is to serve on a board or commissoin that help forum public policy and make Ferndale a prosperous place to be.
The City accepts applications for boards and commissions year-round, not just when there is a vacancy. If you feel you have something to contribute, please fill out an application and send it to City Clerk Susan Duncan (see below). You can find the application here.
