LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – The City of Lincoln is looking for volunteers for the annual Put the Beds to Bed event Saturday, Nov. 12.

The event, which has been rescheduled, to help prepare plant beds at the Sunken Gardens for the upcoming winter, will start at 8:30 a.m. at the gardens near 26th and D Streets.

Those looking to attend are not required to register, and there is no limit to the number of volunteers who can help, the Parks and Recreation Department said.

After annual plants are removed by staff, volunteers will add a fresh layer of compost and hand spade the soil beds.

Attendees are encouraged to bring gloves and a shovel or spade and to dress in layered clothing that may get dirty.

The event is not recommended for children younger than 13.

The event was rescheduled from this Saturday due to inclement weather.

Volunteers who want to be added to the RSVP list for the event should contact Zac Halley, the public gardens volunteer coordinator, at
