Volunteering is a great way to help look after the environment you enjoy. Learn more about your community, be active in the outdoors and meet new people.

Learn new skills, meet new people and be active and healthy while learning about your parks and contributing to the environment.

Volunteering to work in Council parks is simple. Register your interest and we'll be in touch to let you know when upcoming events match your interests.
