• Walk through a park or open space and direct residents to the engagement tent;
• Answer questions and direct difficult questions to staff;
• Set up and take down;
• Hand out marketing items and parks engagement information; and/or
• so much more!

You will be notified as opportunities arise and will have the option to participate as much or as little as they want, however, to remain an active volunteer you must volunteer for at least one shift between March and November.
