Paradise Creek Nature Park offers a variety of volunteer opportunities throughout the year. Neary 2,000 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 Yolima Carr (ycarr@elizabethriver.org) to schedule a private event for groups of 10 or more.

Programs will be canceled in the event of foul weather: rain, storms, snow, temperatures above 90F or below 40F. Please register in advance so we can notify you directly of any changes.
