The Portage Park District has a variety of volunteer opportunities for those interested in helping out while learning more about the natural world.
Volunteer opportunities include:
Special events help: The Park District participates in many community events and festivals and needs help staffing the booth, talking to people, handing out literature, and even wearing a mascot costume.
Event committee members: The Portage Park District is presenting Heritage Tours, a series of tours and events celebrating the county's natural and cultural heritage. Volunteers are needed to help coordinate details for some of these events, including the Duathalon Race and Musical Heritage Fest.
Maintenance and construction: Portage Park District parks and trails need regular upkeep including trail trimming, litter removal, facility repairs and improvements, occasional demolition and miscellaneous construction, such as benches, information boards and fences.
