Volunteer programs to fit your style

We offer a number of ways to volunteer: whether you like talking to strangers 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. Groups are welcome to contact us to set up a special workday for your team.

Each year volunteers have fun donating thousands of service hours to Lincoln Park. In 2019, over 2,000 volunteers participated in our programs providing over 7,000 service hours to 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.

Exercise your body and your mind while helping your park – volunteer today!
