Service Projects for Volunteers

Be a part of big endeavors! Volunteer projects are a key component to helping make Prince William Forest Park a wonderful park. Each year, volunteers log over 18,000 hours of work. For many years, the park has worked with large, mid-size and and small corporations, businesses and other organizations to accept their contributions of time, sweat and elbow grease. The work these volunteers do benefits all people by improving public park facilities and recreation opportunities.

Some of the projects completed by corporate teams, scouting groups, and social networks include cleaning up cabin camps, mulching trails, gravelling trails, splitting wood for campers, glazing windows, and re-engineering window screens.

Contact the park to coordinate a service project that meets the needs of your organization. Project arrangements depend on staff availablity and the demands of environmental assessments and compliance procedures. If you would like your organization of friends, co-workers, or club members to be involved in improving the park, start by contacting the volunteer coordinator. Telephone 703-221-4706 extension 224 or click on the image to email the coordinator. Please allow at least two weeks to make arrangements with park staff.
