Volunteer in the Parks

Connecting Parks and Community

Use your talents, energy and time to connect. With your help, we can do more! Far more than just doing a good deed, volunteering is a way to develop skills, learn about career options, make professional contacts, socialize and have an impact on your community.
NOTICE: With the phased reopening of the park system, we are following CDC guidelines including maintaining social distancing, wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, and limiting group sizes. Please read the attached Q & A document and contact your site volunteer coordinator to express interest in scheduling time to return to volunteer activities.
