Community Volunteers

Many parks and sites need volunteers on a daily, weekly, monthly, or bi-monthly basis. Volunteers get an opportunity to be involved for whatever time they have to give. 

Here is your chance to volunteer as an individual, or with your family/friends for 1-day event or on a weekly basis at your favorite park. You choose your level of commitment.

If you are only going to volunteering sparingly throughout the year you may disregard that step. Thank you for your understanding.
