Corporate Volunteer Groups

The Conservancy has hosted volunteer groups since its inception in 1986, and we would be delighted to welcome your group to the park. Group projects are a great way for organizations and companies to strengthen their ties to one another while giving back to the community.

What Your Group Can Do

Contributing to a greener and cleaner Riverside Park is a great way for corporate groups, private clubs and schools to strengthen their ties to one another while giving back to the community. Riverside Park Conservancy has hosted volunteer groups since its inception in 1986, and we would be delighted to welcome your group to the park.

Projects and times are tailored to meet your group’s interests, and activities will depend on the time of year and current park needs. Your group can choose to work in the park on an ongoing basis, several times a year, or just once per year.

Group Size

We can easily accommodate groups ranging in size from 10-50 people. If you would like to bring a larger group, we will work with you to create a service day that meets your needs and the needs of the Park!

Project Length

Typical service days last between 2-5 hours. The ideal timeframe is from 10:00am – 1:00pm
