Volunteer

Volunteers are always needed!  With one full-time Land Steward to care for 3,600 acres across 23 properties in two counties (and growing!), ParkLands relies on an army of volunteers that join workdays, lead nature walks, help with community outreach events, and contribute media (photography and newsletters)Our volunteers also provide valuable accounting, appraisal, legal, and management services.   

If you’re ready to make a lasting impact through local action, please tell us more about your interests and availability through our volunteer form and we will email you with available opportunities.  

Workdays

Do you like to get your hands dirty?  Workdays are popular for groups both large and small; from individuals to groups of corporate employees, Scouts, retirees, and students. Workdays are scheduled throughout the year and are posted on our events calendar and social media pages.

Volunteer Land Steward

Unfortunately, we haven’t figured out how to clone Land Steward Jason Shoemaker!  He must often prioritize efforts to our most frequently used preserves or special projects.  This is where Volunteer Land Stewards come in.

Volunteers take “ownership” of a preserve through regular, periodic visits (i.e. monthly) to check-in on the property.  They might remove invasive vegetation, gather trash, or document needed maintenance.
