Open Space Volunteers

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers play an important role in advocating for open space and caring for parks by contributing over 500 hours of service every year. Volunteers come in the form of individuals, families, students, youth groups, corporate teams, neighborhoods, and more. Each hour generously given greatly impacts our community and our natural resources.
