Volunteer Opportunities

Olmsted County Parks are seeking enthusiastic volunteers to assist in the everyday running of their parks.  The parks are dependent on the assistance of folks/volunteers, to help with many projects as well as daily and weekly tasks.

There are opportunities at all three county parks: Chester Woods, Oxbow as well as Root River County Park.  The jobs available vary greatly, anywhere from mowing turf, maintaining trails, grooming ski trails, prairie restoration, and invasive weed control, to carpentry, landscaping, painting, working with zoo critters and leading programs.  This is just a very brief list as the tasks are endless.   

If you are interested in sharing your talents with us, and perhaps learning new skill or two, we would love to hear from you!  Please fill out the application provided at the link below and then we will contact you to set up a time to visit!
