Groups can make a big difference in helping to restore Metro parks and natural areas.
Metro can work with your organization to tailor projects for groups of any size, age, purpose or ability. You might build beaver fencing around trees, plant native trees and shrubs, scatter seeds, remove invasive plants, care for park amenities, create habitat for wildlife, spread mulch or other similar tasks.
Metro works with community and corporate groups to do service and teambuilding activities and with scouts and school groups to do hands-on service learning.
Volunteer coordinators often work with service clubs, faith-based organizations, school clubs or classes, youth groups, book clubs, hiking or walking groups, and singles or other Meetup groups.
Groups can choose a project that’s done in a day, or one that continues for years.
For hands-on service learning, activities can be linked to classroom topics, such as wildlife shelters, insects, pollinator habitat and more.
Metro provides tools, snacks, water and staff guidance.
