Are you passionate about the outdoors and want to preserve our county parks for generations to come?

If so, then being a park volunteer could be the perfect opportunity for you. We offer a variety of opportunities for individuals and groups to participate in as single events or ongoing commitments. Check out our list of volunteer events or our calendar with volunteer events highlighted. We look forward to seeing you out on the trails.

Community & Corporate Groups

Why not spend a day volunteering in a local park for your next company or organization team building event?  We will provide the equipment and training and the day will start with an informative Ranger talk about the natural features of the park.

Scout Troops
