04 Mar Calling All Volunteer Work Groups!
Our volunteers help us help Lincoln Park in big ways and we are excited to welcome volunteer work groups safely back to the park this year. Each year we organize groups of all kinds–corporate, civic, religious, alumni, families, friends, and more–in stewardship events throughout Chicago’s largest and most visited park.
In 2019, we had a record 72 corporate, school, and community groups volunteer in the Park; in 2020, we had two. As Lincoln Park experiences increased usage with more people getting outside during the pandemic, we invite you and your group to join us as we build back to our record number of volunteers, and the positive impacts they make in the park.
If you know of co-workers, friends, school groups, family members and others looking to get outside and interested in giving back to Lincoln Park, send them our way. We have gloves, bleach, masks, and can easily socially distance while outside, enjoying the sunshine and nature that Lincoln Park offers and being safe about it.
We tailor each workday to the group’s needs and timeframe. Donations of $20 per person are encouraged to cover cost of materials and event coordination. Your group can also join our existing volunteer groups on Saturday mornings with our North Pond Gardener’s or a weekday evening after work with Hops & Habitat. Contact Aaron Hammond for more information or to schedule.
