Adopt-A-Park

park

Clark County Parks believes you can make a difference in how local parks and trails look and operate.  By participating in the Adopt-A-Park program, you will beautify public spaces and help build community. 

Duties & Responsibilities:

Volunteers can help keep the parks at a high level of quality by “adopting” the park of their choice. Participants will rake leaves and wood chips, pick up litter, clean equipment, remove weeds and invasive plants, and work on other projects that keep the parks looking their best.

You will also need to track and regularly submit your volunteer hours to the Volunteer Program Coordinator. 

All Adopt-A-Park group leaders will meet with the Volunteer Program Coordinator to discuss approved work in their park and safety standards.

Qualifications:

Time Commitment:

Flexible date and time that works best for the volunteers. Six months or longer, at least two times a month for 2-3 hours at a time.

Location:

All parks, trails, and open spaces.

Minimum Age:

You must be at least 13 years of age or older (unless volunteering as part of a family).  If you are under the age of 18 you will need to fill out a Minor Consent Form which can be obtained through the Volunteer Program Coordinator or on-line.

Application required: Yes.


Background check required: Yes for group leader only or if adopting as an individual.

Benefits:

After three months of adoption a recognition sign will be installed at the adopted park. This is great opportunity to get outside, beautify parks, trails and greenspaces, and meet new people.
