The Park District traces its beginnings to the actions of citizens who envisioned the necessity to create a public park system in order to preserve the quality of life for present and future inhabitants of the region. The District values the precious time you have chosen to give in public service on behalf of our regional parks. Volunteers are a cherished and valuable resource that link the District to community and organizations throughout the region; providing an important level of support for District activities, employees, and programs. The District welcomes the expansive and various contributions of volunteers.
We are happy to start welcoming back our dedicated Volunteers!
All Volunteer events require preregistration and volunteers must follow COVID Protocol, as outlined in each event registration page. To sign up for a volunteer opportunity, you will be prompted to make an account as an EBRPD Volunteer and will be able to track all your volunteer time with the District! More protocol details...
• You can search for existing Volunteer Programs, make an account, or propose your own service project from our PROGRAMS page.
• Check back often as we will be adding more programs as available!
• If you would like to volunteer for us, but don’t see a program you’re interested in, consider proposing your own! Create an account and from your dashboard you can PROPOSE A SERVICE PROJECT. This application will allow you to submit a docent interest form or an individual, group, trail, or Scout project. View this handy How to Propose a Service Project Guide to help you!
Celebrating East Bay Regional Park Volunteers
Over the course of the last several months it has been challenging to find ways to let our volunteers know how much they mean to the District. In an effort to show our gratitude, please join us in watching this short film dedicated to those very individuals who help make our parks better. Introduced by Director Rosario, this film will showcase some of the amazing projects and service accomplished by Volunteers. Enjoy!
Without the help of dedicated volunteers and members, the East Bay Regional Park District could not offer the public the variety of services and programs that it does. There are many opportunities for you, your family, or your school or civic group to get involved.
