Public Works recently recognized the Dedicated Deadheaders by awarding them the Parks Maintenance Award for their volunteer contributions to the maintenance of the Morcom Rose Garden since 2008, and for their expanding contributions to maintenance and public event programming at other City of Oakland parks.

The Dedicated Deadheaders have recorded over 11,000 volunteer hours. Their year-round efforts help the Morcom Rose Garden thrive and have also been critical to the success of the Autumn Lights Festival fundraiser for Oakland Parks.
