How Can I Help?

Join Our E-Mail List – Once you join our email list you will receive news and updates about the park but also notifications about trail work, replanting, events and other volunteer opportunities. Contact us at Join Our E-Mail List to join.

Become a member or donate – We welcome offers of assistance but we also need monetary contributions to further our mission. Since we have received our 501(c)(3) exemption, membership fees and contributions are fully deductible. Visit our Contributions page for further info.

Join One of Our Committees – Our committees would like to recruit more people. Please take a look at our list of committees and see if there are particular aspects of our work where you feel you can help. Contact us at Join One of Our Committees.

Help with work parties in the park – On the first Saturday of each month volunteers work on trail and other improvements in the park. Some heavy projects require physical strength but others are suitable for almost everyone. Join our email to receive notifications or meet at the bridge by the Red Barn at 9 am. Tools are provided but bring work gloves, water, snacks and enthusiasm. For more information, contact Help with work parties.

Help with administrative and other work – If you can donate even a few hours to help us with various administrative and other office-type tasks please contact us at Help with admin.

Corporate and Group Volunteers – Corporations and other groups are welcome to volunteer groups for projects in Mianus River Park. Contact us at Corporate and Group Volunteers.

Some future projects that we would like to undertake:

  • Outreach to the neighbors of the Park
  • Coordinating education programs with the local schools
  • Investigating historical structures within the Park
  • Identifying and protecting vernal pools within the Park
  • Surveying park users to identify interests and increase participation in the Friends group.

If any of these may be of interest to you, we would love to hear from you!
