Thank you for expressing an interest in volunteering at Jesse H. Jones Park & Nature Center! We offer a wide variety of volunteer opportunities, including: trail maintenance, living history demonstrator, tour guide, camp counselor, horticultural aide, costume guild, carpentry, and arts & crafts.
In a typical year, volunteers at Jones Park donate 10,000 hours assisting staff with 400+ programs, activities and outreach events attended by nearly 25,000 people. Volunteers are instrumental in leading 100+ homestead tours for 4,000+ area school children and serving as counselors for our free Summer Nature Camp. Volunteers also fill about 100 job/time slots at each of the 5 annual festivals hosted by Jones Park and contribute greatly to the success of these community events.
