Volunteer Programs to Fit your Style
We offer a number of ways to volunteer. Whether you like talking with visitors about nature and park history, planting wildflowers and pulling weeds, or helping fundraise for the Park, we offer volunteer opportunities for every level of commitment. If you like being part of a team or prefer a more solitary volunteer experience, we have a program to fit your style.
With volunteer help in 2022, we provided over 750 hours of stewardship work, hosted our most successful fundraiser to date, and engaged in more than 10,000 visitor interactions in the Park.
Our programs are offered at the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool, Lincoln Park Conservatory and Gardens, and North Pond Nature Sanctuary. Each of these beautiful park sites is located in Lincoln Park near Fullerton Parkway and Stockton Drive. Groups are welcome to contact us to set up a special workday for your team.
Exercise your body and your mind while helping your park – volunteer today!
