The Lincoln Park Conservancy offers a variety of adult programs 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 in Chicago.
Whether you enjoy educating the public about nature and park history, or planting wildflowers and pulling weeds, we offer volunteer opportunities for every level of commitment. Some programs, such as the Lincoln Park Docent Program, require a time commitment and formal training, while others, such as the North Pond Gardeners, require no commitment and optional training.
If you like being part of a team or prefer a more solitary volunteer experience, we have a program to fit your style. You can become a citizen scientist and monitor frog, dragonfly and butterfly populations through our Biodiversity Program. Or become part of our team and contact us to set up a special workday for your school or club.
Each year our volunteers have fun while donating thousands of service hours to Lincoln Park. In 2009, Lincoln Park Docents and North Pond Gardeners provided 3,454 service hours, and planted 2,698 native plants at the North Pond Nature Sanctuary.
