Join a Volunteer Program
We need your help growing and sustaining a greener New York City. Join our teams and local community groups helping out with our on-going greening projects:
Volunteer with NYC Parks to help restore natural areas, care for trees, and monitor wildlife in our parklands. Find events and learn how you can grow as a Parks volunteer.
We want to take good care of all NYC’s street trees. To do that, we’re counting and mapping all the street trees on every block in the city. Want to help out with our tree census?
Each year, thousands of New Yorkers meet in their local parks and playgrounds to help us plant flowers, paint benches, weed, and rake leaves.
We're always looking for a helping hand. Find out how your group can team up with NYC Parks to lead a volunteer project.
