Volunteer at Grandview
Information about the NEXT Grandview Dog Park Work Party:
There are currently no organized Work Parties planned for Grandview.
100% Volunteer Organization!
With the exception of the ”Eight City Work Party” held twice a year (see info below), maintenance and improvement work at Grandview is done by volunteers under the organization of S.O.D.A.. Our contract with the City of SeaTac mandates specific liability indemnification requirements in regards to volunteers. Volunteer work is done during planned Work Parties and all volunteers must sign a “Volunteer Liability Waiver” form before participating. Work Parties are organized on an “as needed” basis. Recruitment is primarily done via our email database, postings on this website and at times, with signs/flyers posted on the Grandview Dog Park bulletin boards. To be placed on S.O.D.A.’s email database, be sure to include your email address when you complete your S.O.D.A. membership/donation form and mark the box for Grandview. S.O.D.A. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and your volunteer work does qualify for “Community Service” credit.
YOU can be an EVERY DAY volunteer … Join the S.O.D.A. “Clean Team”!
Not all S.O.D.A. members and supporters are able to attend the big maintenance and improvement Work Parties that S.O.D.A. organizes. But every one can be an every day volunteer by helping to keep our Grandview Dog Park CLEAN! Join the hundreds of dog park “Clean Team” participants that regulary carry extra “pick up bags” and use them to pick up missed “poops” and litter. Our Dog Park is a valuable resource and you can help treat it with care and respect by voluntarily doing regular EXTRA clean-up each time you visit the Dog Park.
About the twice annual “Eight City Work Party”
The “Eight City Work Party” takes place once in the spring and once in the fall. The participating cities are SeaTac, Kent, Auburn, Renton, Burien , Des Moines, Federal Way and Tukwila. As part of the Grandview operational agreement made with S.O.D.A. in 2003, these eight cities agreed to send workers from their park departments to Grandview twice a year for mowing fields and slopes, edging, power washing and other maintenance tasks that require special or heavy equipment. All other Grandview Dog Park maintenance and improvement work is done by S.O.D.A. volunteers.
Please help us keep off-leash fun and activity at Grandview by joining S.O.D.A.!
