Volunteer Night at Franklin Cycle Works

Tuesday, July 17 @ 6:30-9 p.m.
Franklin Cycle Works

Volunteer Night is a great way to get involved at Franklin Cycle Works. Some volunteers have lots of mechanical knowledge while others are very new to it, but all are interested in learning how to repair and maintain bikes so they can teach others to do the same. The shop isn’t open for repairs on Volunteer Night so the volunteers can get things done around the shop, get to know one another better, and further develop their skills.

Help the Columbus Ecological Restoration Program get rid of invasive plant species

Saturday, July 21 @ 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Atrium Park

When it comes to invasive plants, we just don’t have room for them here! That’s why Columbus Gives Back decided to help the Columbus Ecological Restoration Program get rid of these invasive plant species in Atrium Park, 1 of 353 in Franklin County. All should wear closed toed shoes and clothes they don’t mind getting dirty as this will be a messy clean up job.
