Paradise Creek Nature Park offers a variety of volunteer opportunities throughout the year. Over 1,000 adults and children have helped remove invasive plants, planted native trees, weeded garden beds, removed trash from the trails and wetland, and helped maintain education zones throughout the park. See below for volunteer dates and times or contact Urban Ranger Sumoski to schedule a private event for groups of 10 or more.

December 2016- April 2017

Forestry Stewardship Corps

Help us target invasive plants and rejuvenate the forest of Paradise Creek Nature Park. Invasive plants impact the heath of the forest by killing off natives, changing the habitat, and affecting the food chain. Learn how to identify and remove these plants and what you can do at home to keep them away.

All ages allowed with adult supervision for those under 18.

Interested in volunteering as a group? Please contact us in advance to ensure availability. Spaces are limited.
