General Interests

Forestry

No matter your level of expertise, whether you're interested in helping out for a day or wanting a more long-term commitment, the Forestry Section has a volunteer opportunity for you. 

Volunteer workdays at the Tree Farm projects can vary by season, but often include transplanting trees into containers; planting in the tree fields; weeding; staking and trying trees; and organizing the tree inventory. Bring your family, friends, co-workers and fellow tree enthusiasts. Rain or shine, we'll be here with something to do for every physical activity level. 

General Interests

Graffiti Abatement

What type of projects do we have for volunteers?

Blitz Projects

Purpose

To help reduce and discourage criminal defacement of private and public property and make Fort Worth an even more beautiful community.

Duties

In this very visible role, you’ll attack graffiti by painting over it on structures large and small. Most locations have patchwork that shows were graffiti used to be. For this project you will go over the patchwork, making the wall one cohesive color, which not only beautifies the area but also helps our program if the location ever gets graffiti again.

Time Frame

Typically a 2 to 4 hour shift.

Requirements

  • Personal transportation is required to travel to each location.
  • Must be at least 12 years of age to participate with a supervised group, if you are younger than age 12 you will need one-on-one supervision. Ages 18+ do not need supervision.
  • Must wear closed-toed shoes.
  • Are okay with outdoor activities and potentially getting paint on clothing.
  • No experience necessary.
