Highland Park Cemetery to Reopen on Saturday, Volunteers Still Needed

A Casper cemetery imperiled by downed tree limbs and branches following last week’s record snow storm will reopen this weekend thanks to volunteer support.

Keep Casper Beautiful administrative coordinator Beth Andress says over 30 volunteers cleared debris from Highland Park Cemetery this week. The cemetery is scheduled to reopen this Saturday.

Andress says the volunteers completed a colossal task.

“It’s one of the largest areas within the city of Casper that’s owned by the city – the city supervisor described it as, ‘… it looked like a tornado had gone through.'” Andress said. “Volunteers were able to get all 58 acres cleared in four days.”

Andress says Keep Casper Beautiful is looking for additional volunteers to help clean several additional city parks that were affected by the storm.

“Luckily, in most of those parks, we don’t think there’s any damage to the playgrounds or the structures, but the fallen tree branches do make it hard to use the park,” Andress said. “We’re just looking at getting those areas cleaned up so the public can continue to use the park like they always have.”

Keep Casper Beautiful is aiming to start cleanup efforts at those parks by this weekend.

Volunteer information and online signup forms can be found by visiting Keep Casper Beautiful’s website.
