Metro Parks Tacoma


Chip In

Mission Statement

Our parks need you

Metro Parks Tacoma manages over 2,696 acres of parks and green space, historic landmarks, community centers, beautiful gardens and special attractions that give us all a chance to get out and play more.

We're asking you to "chip in" by investing your time and talents to help us improve parks and green spaces, protect neighborhood buildings and promote a healthy environment while helping to build a stronger community.

Our roots

CHIP-in! originated in 2003 when Metro Parks faced a lack of funds for maintaining all of the city's parks. Rather than take drastic measures - simply closing parks and walking away - we took a proactive approach by developing a partnership between the park district and the community that helps keep parks open and usable.

Are you interested in becoming a volunteer? 

These are the current volunteer opportunities:

Education department volunteers work directly with visitors, educating them about Pacific Northwest animals and their habitats using biofacts and “stopper” cart programs. We are looking for volunteers who are (or have the ability to develop skills in being) comfortable talking to the general public about wildlife and wild places, the ability to be professional in all interactions, and have a willingness to learn!

Zoological department volunteers work with the staff to prepare diets and enrichments for the animals at Northwest Trek. We are looking for volunteers who are reliable, good at following directions, and can work independently.

Horticulture department volunteers work with staff to maintain the lush flora at Northwest Trek. We are looking for volunteers who don’t mind getting their hands dirty, working outside in all weather conditions, and can take direction well.

Special Events volunteers work with the public during park-wide special events doing a variety of things from crafting to passing out candy at a Trick or Treat stations. We are looking for volunteers who are reliable, interested in lending a helping hand during busy days in the park, and can take direction well.
