Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering is essential to keeping the Esplanade clean and beautiful. We would like to thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Esplanade Association (EA)! Volunteering on the Esplanade is a great way to get some fresh air and spend time outdoors while making a visible difference in the park!

EA has opportunities for corporate and non-corporate groups throughout the year, as well as for individual volunteers on Saturdays. Working alongside our Park staff, volunteers participate in a host of park beautification and maintenance projects including planting native species, cutting back invasive species, raking leaves, weeding, removing litter, and painting Park benches. Volunteer project activity varies by season.
