It’s  not all partying.

On Sunday, the Homecoming Week agenda at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs,  includes work.

Students, faculty and alumni will  help  clean up Garden of the Gods park. It was recently damaged by flooding. Community members will help  Rocky Mountain Field Institute  repair trails and gully erosion, officials announced.

But it’s  not all work and no play. There will be a free breakfast  at 10 a.m. at the UCCS  Lodge before heading out to haul dirt  by bucket brigade from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Those wanting to attend email program manager Amanda Koback at akoback@uccs.edu.

Volunteer must be at least 13 years old.
