Be a Morrow County Park District Volunteer

 

People with diverse interests and personal abilities can greatly enhance the quality and quantity of what the Park District is unable to do alone. Volunteers can be a single individual doing a specific task or community groups wishing to embark on a larger park facility project. We have been honored to have scouts, service organizations, school children and corporations contribute both time and money to the parks. Trails have been upgraded, litter removed, fences mended, facilities built, benches donated, grass mowed, and invasive plants controlled by dedicated volunteers. Your sweat and brain equity is needed, please contact the district to learn about volunteer opportunities and specifically how your talents can be utilized!
