Austin Parks Foundation


 
We believe that parks, trails and green spaces enrich our community and that all Austinites should have access to them. That is why our mission is to care for and improve our parks, and we need your help! You'll need to make a GivePulse account (in the top right corner) in order to register for any of our volunteer opportunities. It's quick and easy; once you're signed up for GivePulse, choose any of the open events below and you'll be registered to volunteer in no time!
COVID-19 UPDATE 
We're so excited to welcome volunteers back to our parks starting July 1st! In order to ensure volunteer safety we have worked with our partners at Parks and Rec to implement the following procedures. Project registration will be very limited so please only register if you are certain you can participate, and if something changes between registration and the event, please let us know so we can open that spot back up.

  • Volunteers are REQUIRED to register in GivePulse
  • Tools will be assigned to individual volunteers and will not be shared.
  • Tools will be sanitized after every project and stored separately for at least 72 hours
  • Social Distancing practices will be maintained throughout project, all projects will be led and supervised by APF staff

  • Volunteers must bring their own water, snacks, etc.

Jane & Mary --
You can use the search bar at the top of the projects, but if there isn't a project at that specific park it won't show up. You might also try the world icon to see a map of projects either here, or in the It's My Park Day subgroup. Hope that helps!
I just sent a note to the administrator asking the same question Mary Chimelak and Nicole Fisher.
Is there a place for me to search to find a specific name of the park that I want to volunteer? That way I don't have to scroll down. I'm looking for Mary Moore Searight Park.

Thanks
doesn't look like there is one at Mary Moore - I am leading the Veloway, which isn't too far from MMoore. Please enjoy joining us if you'd like. Thank You - Nicole — Nicole Fisher Nicole Fisher on October 28, 2016

Additionally, volunteers will work to help maintain the grow zone area, which is managed by the COA Watershed Protection Department. Please dress appropriately, and bring a personal water bottle. Children 13 and under must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
