Volunteer Opportunities

Burlington County Parks System offers a variety of volunteer opportunities that provide participants with an opportunity to learn, share their interests and skills, and help to protect and preserve our natural, cultural and historical resources.

Special arrangements can be made to accommodate groups of 20 or more. Corporate groups and service organizations are welcome! If your group is interested in volunteering for a day, we can offer an enjoyable and educational experience. When you are ready to schedule an event please fill out the Volunteer Group Registration Form and let us know your preferred dates.

Students interested in earning Community service hours should see the Burlington County Clean Communities  page.

All other volunteers must fill out a Volunteer Application Form and will be assigned to tasks they are best suited for based on their interests and skills provided in the application and at the discretion of park staff.
