Individual Volunteer Opportunities

Individual and Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities

ParkTenders
ParkTenders are dedicated volunteers with horticultural knowledge make a long-term commitment to maintaining existing green areas, park entrances, steps and walkways.

PlacePartners
PlacePartners are individuals who wish to work in one particular location, but are unable to volunteer on a regular basis. PlacePartners work assist existing ParkTenders or Conservancy staff, and/or help a pre-existing volunteer group that tends a specific area.

ParkRovers
ParkRovers volunteers help throughout the park on a sporadic basis as needs emerge and as their schedule allows. Great option for someone who wants to be involved from time to time but cannot make a commitment to regular/frequent volunteer sessions.

Park User Groups
Volunteer-led “Park User Groups” naturally formed over time as neighbors organized and worked together to care for certain sites in the Park. These groups collaborate with Riverside Park Conservancy to steward and advocate for an anchor location in the Park. User Groups function like ParkTenders, but volunteers work as a team and often expand their activities to include fundraising, advocacy for City investment, and engaging in communications with the public.
