FREE Information Session: Park Steward Program
March 07, 2017 06:30 PM - March 07, 2017 07:30 PM

A Park Steward is a volunteer leader who receives in-depth training by Olmsted Parks Conservancy staff in order to help with park projects, volunteer events and/or community outreach. Park Stewards volunteer an average of at least 4 hours monthly to help protect and restore natural areas, to raise awareness in the community and serve as advocates for Louisville’s Olmsted Parks. Benefits of becoming a Park Steward include learning about native flora and fauna, gaining hands-on experience in ecological restoration, developing leadership skills, and volunteering alongside others who share a passion for our neighborhood parks.

 

To be a Park Steward, you do not have to have previous volunteering experience but you do need to be 18 years or older.

There will be a FREE Information Session on March 7, 2017 at 6:30pm. Register now. Or call us at 502-456-8125 to reserve your spot for our next training series!

There is a $50 training program fee which helps to offset the costs for materials, certifications and administrative costs. To request a scholarship application, please email us or call 502-456-8125.
