There are several ways to volunteer with Fairmount Park Conservancy.
Love Your Park
Twice a year we organize a citywide park clean-up called Love Your Park. In the spring, Love Your Park Week is held in May, and in the fall, a service day is held in November. These volunteer days of cleaning and greening attract thousands of volunteers to various parks throughout the Philadelphia park system.
In 2018, Love Your Park Week will be from May 12-20 and Love Your Park Fall Service Day will be November 10. Visit loveyourpark.org for more information.
Fairmount Park Conservancy is currently seeking passionate volunteers to help us spread the word about our upcoming events and programs at local festivals and community events. We are looking for friendly, reliable people that love to meet people and have a passion for Philly’s parks. Learn more about the opportunity here.
The Conservancy also offers a Corporate Stewardship Program for businesses interested in having employees spend a day of service in Fairmount Park. Please click here for more information.
Volunteer with Philadelphia Parks & Recreation
Volunteers are needed to help preserve and restore Philadelphia‘s open space. Join Philadelphia Parks & Recreation and the Fairmount Park Conservancy for outdoor volunteer experiences on the second Saturday of every month! Projects will rotate around the city- from the woods of the Wissahickon Valley, to the lakes of FDR, and every green space in between. Help us plant trees, remove invasive plants, clean waterways, and much more, all while exploring the hidden trails, forests, and historical gems of Philadelphia‘s park system. Projects are lead by PPR & FPC staff–we bring the tools, gloves, and expertise. You bring the energy!
