Thank you for your group’s interest in volunteering with Fairfax County Park Authority. We have welcomed volunteer groups in many of our parks all across the county and would be happy to work with you to find a project that fits your group’s interests and location. Please know that most of our group projects are located outdoors, in our parks or on the grounds of our facilities (RECenters, Nature Centers and Historic Sites).
You can view a listing of current group volunteer opportunities in our system by visiting Volunteer in the Parks.

For us to best match a project to your group, please send an email to FCPAVolunteers@fairfaxcounty.gov. Include as much of the following information as possible so we can quickly connect you with an appropriate staff person:
For planning purposes, we ask for 2-4 weeks advance notice, but we can sometimes accommodate groups on a shorter timeframe, depending on schedules and specific projects.
We are currently working on developing an information sheet on how to propose a project if you are a scout looking for a BSA Eagle Scout project or a GSUSA Gold Award project or American Heritage Girls Stars and Stripes project. Please check back for more information!
