Volunteer Opportunities

Individual Volunteer Opportunities

We have volunteer opportunities in parks, trails and green spaces across Austin!
Hey, y'all! Due to COVID-19, we're not able to organize volunteer opportunities at this time. The City of Austin's Parks and Recreation Department (PARD) is reviewing the feasibility of safe volunteer events and will make an announcement on August 15th. We look forward to the day that we can get back into the parks with y'all. Thank you for your understanding and stay tuned for updates!

Who We Are

We're grounded in the generosity of the Austin community. From our city-wide volunteer days, It’s My Park Day, to individual work days held throughout the year, thousands of Austinites volunteer in the parks.

How You Can Help

Volunteerism has been at the center of who we are as an organization since day one. We place tremendous value on the individuals, groups and companies that make up our dedicated volunteer corps. Ready to volunteer?

It's My Park Day
Our biggest city-wide volunteer event, It’s My Park Day, takes place the first Saturdays in March and November. Each year, thousands of volunteers work to improve parks and greenbelts throughout the city.

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.
