Join us this winter on our weekly pruning projects! 2019 pruning projects will take place January 15 - March 6, every Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:30am - 11:30am. No commitment is necessary, but an initial training on January 8 or 9 is required. If you are interested in participating, please e-mail the Volunteer and Programs Coordinator to sign-up!
Many of our volunteers know and love our parks—as their front yard, their lunch-time escape, or a place to relax on the weekends—and they want to make a difference right on the ground. We hold a series of outdoor projects from mid-March to December to work on common gardening tasks such as weeding, raking, mulching, planting, and pruning. These typically occur once a month on weekday mornings from 9:00am-12:00pm.
The specific area that we will be working in that day and any changes due to inclement weather will be sent to you prior to the project. We ask that all volunteers arrive on time and ready to work with closed-toe shoes and weather-appropriate clothing that can get dirty. All volunteers are asked to sign a waiver prior to beginning the project, and we will provide gloves, tools, water, and a snack!
Our 2018 season is officially over. Come back soon for our 2019 calendar!
Please see our FAQs or contact us to find out more.
We also have some additional opportunities for individuals to be involved. To get started, you can fill out our General Volunteer Application! We also have set job descriptions and responsibilities for the following volunteer positions.
Please get in touch with the Volunteer & Programs Coordinator at email@example.com if you are interested in any of these opportunities or if you would like to explore other possibilities. As a general note, the volunteer intake process runs more quickly from November to April; from May to October many of our staff are busy out in the parks and response times may be delayed.
