THESE ARE #PARKSBYYOU.
Our parks belong to all of us. Great parks have the power to increase our quality of life and strengthen the fabric of our neighborhoods. Together with your support, we can help create thriving parks and communities for everyone.
When you volunteer, everything you do—small or large—matters. It moves us closer to a Houston where everyone can enjoy access to greenspaces and live healthier, happier lives. Whether you can help every week or just for an afternoon, there are so many ways to share your skills and talents.

VOLUNTEERS IN ACTION: CONSERVATION AT COOLGREEN PARK
The Green Team is an essential part of the Bayou Greenways Conservation program. Typically, Green Team events are on the second Wednesday of the month from 9 am-12 pm. We are looking for volunteers who enjoy being outdoors and are passionate about conservation. Our volunteers participate in restoration work including invasive species removal and planting in our meadows, wetlands, and forest tracts. They build skills and knowledge on land management, invasive species ID, wetland restoration, and much more! Volunteers must be 16 or older.
Weekend Volunteer Events occur seasonally. All are welcome to join us on these seasonal events with a conservation focus. Whether it is wetlands, prairies, or forests, our volunteers are an essential part of Houston Parks Board’s conservation efforts. These events are typically in the spring and fall and make a great activity for the whole family.
Administrative Volunteers support Houston Parks Board staff in a variety of ways. Positions are announced ad-hoc and may include photography/videography, advocacy, graphic design, ArcGIS,program design, and database management.
Program and Event Volunteers support large-scale events, community events where HPB has a table, and programs. Volunteers can also lead programs such as bike rides after successful interview and background check process. Share your passion to help others connect to their neighborhood park or greenway!
Group Volunteers are occasionally needed to complete a conservation & maintenance project. If you are a nonprofit, club, or company seeking an outdoor project for 15-100 people, inquire about availability at firstname.lastname@example.org.
