Urban EcoStewards Urban EcoStewards give back by caring for park land and greenspaces.

EcoStewards adopt and care for areas in the parks and in their communities.

With training and support from organizations throughout Pittsburgh, Urban EcoSteward volunteers adopt and care for sites in parks or in their communities. These volunteers visit their adopted sites as often as they're able throughout the year to remove invasive plants, care for trees, clear trash, and much more.

To become an Urban EcoSteward, please email Lindsey-Rose Flowers, Nine Mile Run Watershed Association.
