The Jacksonville Boosters Club and Foundation provide and maintain many of the benches located throughout Jacksonville. Benches are found on California Street, Oregon Avenue, and at Doc Griffin Park. Volunteers stain, repair, and replace benches as needed.
Peter Britt Gardens Clean up and Restoration
Working with the City of Jacksonville, the Jacksonville Boosters Club and Foundation is renovating Peter Britt Gardens.

Annually, at least 2 clean- ups, plantings, shrub pruning, leaf removal parties are held at Peter Britt Gardens, the original home site of Peter Britt.
Every other year during May, the Jacksonville Boosters Club, working with the Jacksonville Garden Club, conduct home and garden tours. Volunteers take tickets, greet attendees, and act as home docents providing information on the history of the homes and gardens.
