Volunteering for MetroParks
Share your talents, learn new skills, meet new friends. Volunteering for MetroParks is fun, rewarding, and supports a mission for conservation, education and recreation, now and for generations to come! Enjoy flexible scheduling and new experiences. Training is available. Organizations and people of all ages are welcome*. Service learning, volunteer internships, one-time and on-going opportunities are all available. Email volunteering@YourMetroParks.net for more information.
Volunteering can be as varied as the parks themselves: support conservation efforts, trails, fishing, history, music, birds and wildlife, gardening, photography and natural landscapes. Help at an event or program, in the field, the office, the lodge or the welcome center! For additional details and an ever-changing list of volunteer opportunities:

What: Get ready for some good, not-so-clean, family fun! People from all over the Butler County community will be sliding, climbing, and crawling their way through the MetroParks of Butler County’s Mud Mania obstacle course, and we need your help to keep them safe during their last blast of summer! Volunteers are needed for registration, to help participants on the course and to referee contestants of the mud volleyball tournament (Friday & Saturday). On Sunday, we will have Mutt Mania! A day of some good, not-so-clean, dog fun! Dogs (on leash) can climb, crawl and splash their way through MetroParks of Butler County’s Mutt Mania obstacle course. We will need volunteers to assist with setup/cleanup, registration and to be helpers along the course. We will also need help with dog bathing stations for the pups that dare to get dirty!
