 Volunteer with Us

In addition to recruiting 8 stipended Park Champions, we’re seeking out volunteers to join Champions for exciting events in a neighborhood park. We’ll be hosting programs on:


Park Beautification

Environmental Education

Public Space Recycling

…and more


Be sure to wear comfortable shoes, bring a water bottle to stay hydrated, and wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty! Whether you’re an avid environmentalist or just want to learn how you can help, we have volunteer opportunities for you.
