Volunteer Resources

Each year, more than 5,000 volunteers help to improve and conserve Saint Paul's natural areas, educate the community--young and old, and keep our parks and gardens healthy and beautiful.

If you enjoy being outside, taking care of our environment, and live or work or play in Saint Paul, you should consider joining our welcoming community of volunteers. We have a variety of ways to volunteer. We hope you will find a role that fits your needs, whether you have two hours or two years to give.
