Weekly Landscape Volunteers

Become an integral part of the Park by working alongside a member of the Conservancy field staff each week.

This volunteer program is currently on a winter hiatus. We plan to resume weekly landscape volunteer activities in spring 2022. If you are interested in volunteering as a Weekly Landscape Volunteer, please fill out a Central Park Conservancy Application.

Landscape Volunteers commit to working a regular weekly schedule with a member of the Conservancy field staff, helping meet the horticulture and maintenance needs of a particular area of the Park. By regularly working with staff and alongside other volunteers, you’ll develop a great deal of knowledge, ownership, and pride about your area of the Park. Tasks include weeding, mulching, and raking.

To become a Landscape Volunteer, you must:

  • Complete the interview and training processes
  • Have a strong interest in horticulture
  • Be willing to commit annually to one three-hour shift per week
  • Be able to do physically demanding work, including bending, lifting, and kneeling
  • Have internet access to record work hours and communicate through email
