Are you passionate about your Olmsted Parks and looking for a way to give back more as a Volunteer? Become a Park Steward!
Olmsted Parks Conservancy Park Stewards serve as official ambassadors and play an integral role in helping our organization enhance, restore and protect our 17 Olmsted Parks and 6 Parkways.
With duties ranging from helping to remove invasive plants in designated park areas, leading volunteer groups, or managing a booth at community events, there’s an opportunity for every interest and skillset. Park Stewards volunteer an average of four hours monthly.
Through our Park Steward training program, you’ll attend a series of lectures and hikes to learn more about Park History, Horticultural Techniques, Plant Identification, and Woodlands Management, all while meeting amazing new people and getting the opportunity to exercise ownership over these greenspaces you care about.
