Join in the effort!

Our volunteer program typically runs between April 1 and October 30 each year.  Volunteer opportunities include tree planting, weed pulling,  native grass and wildflower seeding, and trash pick up.  We have opportunities for both individuals and groups to assist with the beautification and restoration of the Jordan River Parkway:

First Saturday Service Projects:

On the first Saturday morning of every month, starting on April 1st, 2017, we will have a community service project open to anyone who would like to join us and give back to the Jordan River Parkway! Learn more, and then RSVP below.

Groups:

We love it when groups contact us to volunteer! We will schedule a service project specifically for your group at a location time and date that works best for you.  For all volunteer events, we will provide tools, gloves, and water.  We can easily accommodate groups up to 60 people. Larger groups (up to 150) may be accommodated with sufficient notice, but we cannot guarantee that we will have a project for groups of this size.
