Volunteering at the Park
Become a Wetlands Park volunteer!
Due to COVID-19 concerns, volunteer opportunities are currently limited. We are accepting new volunteers in the following areas:
After a background check and training, Wetlands Watch volunteers walk the Park on their own and report conditions and other observations. Watch volunteers may also pick up trash and remove graffiti.
After a background check and training, volunteers are needed to answer phones in the Administration Building Tuesday through Sunday. Limited contact with the public.
Please view the Volunteering at Wetlands Park Brochure (PDF) for a description of volunteer jobs during a typical year, which include leading Field Trips, assisting with indoor and outdoor programs for kids and adults, and staffing the Nature Center Exhibit Gallery.
Becoming a Volunteer
The first step to becoming a volunteer is to sign up to attend an information class, Get Involved at Wetlands Park, to learn about the program and expectations, as well as an overview of the Park. Following the class, volunteers will schedule a one-on-one interview and complete a Volunteer Application. All volunteers must undergo fingerprinting and a background check, which takes several weeks to complete. Volunteers are asked to make a commitment of seven hours per month and to remain in the program for at least six months. Additional training classes are also required.
