Ongoing Opportunities

The following roles require a commitment of one calendar year.
RESTORATION SUPERVISORS work closely with staff to help improve and maintain areas of high ecological significance in Saint Paul. Restoration Supervisors assist with supervising volunteers during large habitat restoration events. They may also lead small volunteer events in the absence of staff. 

ECOSTEWARDS are individuals and small groups who are dedicated to preserving, protecting and restoring natural areas and vital ecosystems. They will adopt a parcel of land in the Como Woodland Outdoor Classroom in Como Regional Park.

GARDEN STEWARDS  are individuals and groups who care for the many gardens in Saint Paul by planting, weeding, mulching and providing general garden maintenance. 
PARK STEWARDS  are individuals and small groups who assist in the upkeep and general beautification of Saint Paul's parks and trails. 


If you aren't able or ready to commit to the required times above, sign up for our environmental volunteers e-newsletter.
We frequently hold one-time volunteer events in the summer, as well, which only require a commitment of
a couple of hours after work on a weekday or on a Saturday morning.
