Park Site Volunteers
This is the perfect category for those who are searching for individual volunteer opportunities. Great for high school students, college service-learning students, court-mandated volunteers and other individuals looking to fulfill community service requirements. Volunteers in this category sign up to provide operational support across various placements throughout the park system. Park site volunteers typically commit a minimum of 20 hours of service and are subject to background screenings. Park Site volunteers work closely with park staff and follow social distancing protocols and CDC guidelines in place at all Miami-Dade County Park facilities.
Park Conservation Corps
This is a signature group of volunteers who are provided with opportunities to learn about the past, present and future state of our parks system through various educational sessions and interactive park beautification projects. The group was inspired by the spirit of the U.S Civilian Conservation Corps of the 1930s which helped build many of our local roads and heritage parks. Park Conservation Corp members come together to volunteer and become ambassadors of the park system. Participation is based on an annual enrollment process.
Adopt-A-Park Group Volunteers
This service option matches groups interested in donating resources, volunteer labor, in-kind materials, and monetary contributions with park enhancement needs. We also offer groups the opportunity to “adopt” specific park sites and natural areas. Note: This group volunteer offering is currently limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Only groups of 8 or less can be accommodated at this time. Fill out our Group Volunteering Request form to provide us with information on your group.
