The Urbandale Community Action Network (UCAN) is seeking volunteers for the 20th annual Urbandale Spring Yard Clean-Up.   This year’s clean-up will take place on Saturday, April 27th from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. Our morning will start at Lions Park Shelter House with a great pancake breakfast from our Urbandale Lions Club!

Volunteers help elderly and disabled Urbandale residents prepare for winter by cleaning out flower beds, raking yards, trimming bushes and other general yard work. Volunteers should meet at the Lion’s Park shelter house at 72nd & Prairie in Urbandale and provide their own work gloves, rakes and trimmers, if possible.
Both groups and individuals are encouraged to volunteer – families with kids are welcome! Anyone interested in volunteering register your group by emailing
Any individuals in need of assistance or if you have questions contact the UCAN office at 515 278-3999 or email
