Volunteer with Chattanooga City Parks
The Chattanooga Park Stewards Volunteer Program's mission is to significantly improve the environmental and aesthetic quality of our parks and greenways by organizing and promoting volunteerism and stewardship.
Volunteers are a valuable asset to the Parks Division - providing time, talent, and resources to help ensure the health of the park system. The Park Volunteers program also provides an opportunity to educate park visitors and citizens on the importance of stewardship of our parks. Park stewardship is key to guaranteeing that our parks, trails, and greenways will remain safe and clean and be enjoyed for years to come.
Example volunteer tasks include:
- Picking up litter, limbs, and debris.
- Light landscaping, such as pulling weeds and adding mulch.
- Cleaning and painting benches, picnic tables, and signs.
- Removing vegetation on walking paths.
- Reporting maintenance needs.
Chattanooga Parks volunteers assist with the upkeep of our parks through a variety of opportunities, from litter pick up to invasive species removal. Find one to suit your interests and skills!
