Waukesha County Parks and Land Use Volunteer Opportunities


Volunteering with Parks and Land Use is a great opportunity for individuals and groups to enjoy the outdoors while giving back to the community in various ways. Project needs vary depending on the time of year and the current projects going on within the Park System. In general, the need is for natural land management work involving basic hand tools (shovels, wheelbarrows, rakes, etc).

Volunteers are also needed throughout the year for various special events held at Retzer Nature Center.

Interested in volunteering at a park system facility as an individual, a group, or for your Eagle Scout/Gold Award project? Complete one of the Interest forms below.
