Volunteer › Volunteer restoration
Metro has a variety of done-in-a-day and recurring restoration projects available at parks and natural areas across the region suitable for groups of all sizes and ages.
Is your service club, faith group, school or scout troop looking for a service project? Is your workplace planning a team-building day? Metro's 12,000-plus acres of natural areas and parks offer a variety of done-in-a-day and recurring restoration projects suitable for groups of all sizes and ages.
Most of Metro's natural areas and parks need active and ongoing restoration to enhance their habitat value for native plants and animals and to protect water quality. From building beaver fences around vulnerable trees to digging erosion control "water bars" on trails to planting native trees, volunteer groups play a key role in Metro's stewardship efforts.
Metro provides tools, snacks, water and staff guidance to ensure a safe, enjoyable and productive day. To learn more or to arrange a project, contact volunteer services.
