(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The city is putting out a call for volunteers to help clean up Heritage Park after it was hit hard by flooding in March.

Volunteers are needed on Thursday and Friday from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m.

Heritage Park has been closed since the middle of March due to flooding on the Missouri River. The ball fields were completely underwater.

Volunteers will help with scraping dried silt out of the pavilion and other hard surfaces in the complex as well as picking up debris.

Anyone who would like to help should wear long pants, closed-toed shoes, gloves and must be 10 years of age of older.

High temperatures will be much cooler, only go up to the upper 70s to lower 80s both on Thursday and Friday. We'll have more dry and quiet conditions as we end the work week and head into the weekend.
