Volunteer with the Forest Park Conservancy

Volunteers have always been at the heart of Forest Park Conservancy. From working in the office to removing invasive plants and repairing trails, we could not do our work without the support of hard working, caring people and community groups and businesses. Each year, FPC recruits and trains 700 who log more than 7,000 hours in on-the-ground stewardship in Forest Park. What to join us? Sign up here to get on the list to learn about volunteer opportunities!

In Forest Park, our volunteers engage in a variety of stewardship activities year round, rain or shine. Contact us if you'd like to volunteer in the office or follow the links below to learn more about our stewardship program in the park: 

Volunteer Requirements

All volunteers must come prepared to get dirty in a pair of long pants and sturdy, closed-toe shoes. Be sure to bring warm layers (synthetic or wool material is best for cold, rainy days), a waterproof layer, and a full personal water bottle. All training, tools and gloves are provided. No previous experience necessary.

Waiver Form

Although we have an excellent safety record, all of our volunteers must sign a waiver before participating in stewardship activities. For volunteers under the age of 18, a parent or legal guardian must co-sign. Waivers are available on site at the start of each work party and should be turned in at that time. Follow the link below to view our volunteer waiver form or feel free to print and fill it out in advance.
