There are many opportunities to volunteer within the Parks Department for individuals, youth groups, work groups, church groups and families. Commitments can be short term or long term projects. You can bring your unique talents or simply your enthusiasm to contribute to the community. Being a Cultivator has many benefits and rewards.
