Green Grove Program

Two volunteer opportunities are available through Green Grove in the fall, game day volunteering and recycling sorting. Game day volunteers pass out recycling bags and educate tailgaters about recycling in order to reduce the amount of waste produced on game days. Sorting volunteers work on the Mondays and Tuesdays after home games to sort through the recycling bags collected in the Grove, Circle, and stadium. Use the links below to sign up for game day or sorting.
