Benefits of Volunteering

The Volunteer

The volunteer experience is full of comradery and fun! It's even better when you bring a friend.

The Parks

Austin's parks need some love and care. Your volunteered labor hours help keep our parks in shape.

The City

The City of Austin's park budget has a shortfall to the tune of $100M a year, and labor is expensive.
