Volunteer with Us!

Volunteers are important to us. They play a vital role in the success of our programs and events. Without your help, it would be challenging to meet the needs of our community. Our volunteers generously contribute their time and skills to maintain our natural areas, coach youth sports, guide runners, and make events like Boo Bash even more special for their families, friends, and neighbors.

Who Can Volunteer?

Volunteers must be 14 years of age or older, although age requirements may vary for certain opportunities. Youth under 14 can volunteer with a caregiver or legal guardian. To get started, all prospective volunteers must complete a Volunteer Application. Some positions may also require a background check. The program supervisor will provide the application and additional details.
