PARD has many committed nonprofit partners who assist with coordinating volunteer opportunities on parkland. Check out our partner’s websites below to find an opportunity that best fits what you’re looking for!


Due to recent uptick of COVID-19 cases, the City and County moved to Stage 5 of the Risk-Based Guidelines and the Stay Home, Work Safe Order was extended. Based on the recent data, PARD is halting the re-establishment of volunteer activities on parkland.  PARD/CoA will continue to revisit this issue and will keep our nonprofit partners updated on the status.
