Joining a seasonal volunteer team is one of the quickest and easiest ways to get involved in Central Park. No previous experience is necessary, and we’ll give you all the tools and training you need to get started. For your safety, please wear long pants and closed-toe shoes.
Tasks depend on time of year and the condition of the Park, but are generally like this:
In spring and summer, help us maintain Park landscapes by removing unwanted and invasive plants.
In spring and summer, help us paint fencing, railing, and more than 10,000 iconic benches located throughout the Park.
In autumn, help us rake the leaves that fall from the Park’s 18,000 trees.
In winter, help us clear away snow from the Park’s 21 playgrounds, so neighborhood children can enjoy them safely.
Advance signup is required. New Applicants: Please fill out a Central Park Conservancy Application, indicating your interest in Seasonal Teams.
