Fred's Facts

With its stylized system of roads and concourses, music court, lily pond, and carefully arranged border plantings, Shawnee was the most formal of Frederick Law Olmsted’s large, pastoral parks.

Park Steward Training Series

Park Steward Training Series
March 10, 2018 09:00 AM - March 10, 2018 12:00 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 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.
