Volunteer Days

Volunteers are critical to healthy, beautiful parks. Every year, thousands of enthusiastic, dedicated volunteers offer their time to care for the parks that they love and enjoy. However you'd like want to participate, we have a volunteer opportunity for you:

  • Volunteer days: Join hundreds of other park lovers at these major events held every spring and fall in the four regional parks. Dates and registration below.
  • Horticultural volunteering: Help maintain park gardens on our regularly held weekdays weeding events from spring through fall. Learn more here.
  • Corporate and community days: Coordinate a 3- to 4-hour volunteer outing for your company or community group with us. Learn more here.
  • Urban EcoStewards: Take on your own piece of the park as a long-term Urban EcoSteward. Learn more here.
  • Tabling volunteers: Promote the parks and our mission at area events. Learn more here.
  • Data entry volunteers: Spend some time with us working on data management. Learn more here.
