District 10 Como Community Council

Thanks, volunteers!


District 10 Como Community Council would like to thank everyone in the neighborhood who has been participating with us! None of our community events and initiatives would happen without our Como Volunteers, and the folks participating in our committees who help plan and prepare.
So far this year:
• We held a Blizzard Breakfast at North Dale Rec, where we Bethel Lutheran volunteers helped us serve a Pancake breakfast to 300 community members.
• We helped coordinate two Como Zoo blood drives, with over 100 donors.
• We partnered with St. Paul Parks and Rec for an earth day Como Cleanup, another 140 volunteers!
• We hosted the 2nd annual Pick Up and Party at Orchard Rec, hosting 100 community members.
• We helped coordinate the Como Garage Sale, with over 40 households participating again.
• This week, in partnership with Capitol Region Watershed District, we kicked off our 2023 Lake Como Cleanup season where 32 volunteers helped clean the lakeshore.
The year is only half over and now is a great time to get involved in our work! Find upcoming events on our website. We can find a place that works for you to get involved in the community. Reach out to info@district10comopark.org if you have any questions.
Como Tree Trek
The D10 Environment Committee hosts Tree Treks where community members can learn how to identify and appreciate the multitude of different tree species living in Como Park on June 24 - or self-guided any time. Volunteer tree expert Stephanie Mirocha is our fabulous second-generation Tree Trek guide.
In addition to the planned events each year, the Tree Trek program has also created and installed Tree Tags on numerous trees around Como Park for self-guided tree treks. Find out more at district10comopark.org/tree-trek.

Ice Cream Social
Como Park’s Annual Ice Cream Social will be on July 14, 5:30-8 p.m. at the Historic Streetcar Station in Como Park, 1224 Lexington Pkwy. N. Because parking is limited, we encourage community members to walk, bike, roll, car-pool, or take public transportation.
