Volunteer Opportunities for Project Work

Public workdays provide an opportunity for volunteers to get involved in shorter projects throughout the year and help the park achieve key preservation goals. Each workday will be from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. Please contact the volunteer coordinator, Olivia Black, if you would like to sign up since we can only accommodate a limited number of volunteers for each workday. Potential projects include: fence removal and construction, vegetation removal, whitewashing, painting, or general park clean up. Please note that we may restrict the number of volunteers in groups that sign up to ensure that other volunteers have access to these opportunities.
