If you are looking for a rewarding way to volunteer a small amount of your time and make a positive impact in your community, M-DOG and Strawberry Fields for Rover Off-Leash Park have some volunteer opportunities for you.
Work Parties The dog park is run by volunteers under stewardship of Marysville Parks and Recreation. The only compensation is the job of making the park a better place for our four-legged companions. We’re always looking for a hand at dog park work parties that are at noon the 3rd Saturday of each month, weather permitting. General tasks include:
Picking up pet waste and garbage in and around the fenced park,
Sweeping the entrance and drinking fountain concrete pad,
Wiping down fixtures and agility equipment,
Restocking pet waste bag dispensers, and
Mowing and trimming at the right times of the year.
We announce bigger projects and park improvements scheduled for work parties on this website, Facebook and Twitter pages.

Want to serve on the M-DOG Board of Directors? M-DOG is always looking for new Board Members who want to give back to the community. The commitment is minimal, but central to all the work that M-DOG does on behalf of dogs and pet owners, including our annual Poochapalooza event in July. The Board meets 6:30 p.m. at the 88th Street Haggen Food & Pharmacy.
If you are interested in helping at work parties or serving on the M-DOG Board, please contact Doug Buell by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (425) 308-2716. Your dog is welcome to attend work parties (if we could put them to work, we would!), but not meetings.
4-H volunteers were instrumental in helping with installation of the small dog area inside the park, spreading mulch there and filling patches.
Volunteers at the dog park provide general stewardship, mow and trim the park, install benches and other fixtures. Scout Kyle Coon and his team built the park's kiosk as his Eagle Scout project.
