Doing Our Part to Keep Columbus Beautiful!

Our community service project this fall will be held on Saturday, October 15 (bye week, no football) at Tuttle Park, 240 W. Oakland Avenue, Columbus 43201, just north of campus.  This conservation project will take place from 9 am to 12 noon.  It is mostly focused on invasive species removal to clear the walking paths, but litter clean-up is also an option.  We may be joined by other groups of OSU Alumni.

This is a family-friendly event, and we know many high school students are required to perform community service events during the school year, so feel free to bring them along!  Also, volunteers will be treated to lunch at Jack & Benny’s at the end of the project! 

If you are able to participate, please reply to Karyn Johnson to sign up (  We need to give a headcount to the Parks department.  Karyn will send you a map with directions and answer any other questions you may have.  

You should plan to bring your own gardening / outdoor work gloves.  The Recreation and Parks Department will provide all other supplies and tools. They also strongly recommend you wear LONG pants (not shorts), solid shoes (no open toes) that may get muddy, and bring sunscreen and bug spray.  

Please print out the attached waiver and complete it before the event.  You can return it by email to Karyn Johnson ( or bring it with you to the event.  Thank you for supporting our Community Service efforts!
