The Conservancy is the only organization that tends to the full care of Central Park. With 843 acres to manage, there’s a lot of ground for our volunteers to cover—and friends for them to make!

Our expert staff care for the Park’s trees, gardens, water bodies, and woodlands year-round, but we depend on thousands of volunteers to help us maintain a welcoming space for visitors and wildlife alike. And you could be one of them!

Explore our volunteer opportunities below.

Flexibly Scheduled Volunteer Opportunities

Our Flexibly Scheduled Volunteer Opportunities allow you to sign up for volunteers projects as you are available. These projects happen on a variety of days and times throughout the year, flexing with the seasons and needs of the Park.

Committed Volunteer Opportunities

Our Committed Volunteer Opportunities allow volunteers to commit to a regularly scheduled weekly shift. These projects require additional screening, training, and have limited recruitment.
