Are you interested in volunteering in Anchorage parks and recreation programs? Every year, hundreds of community volunteers like you roll up their sleeves and contribute their talents and energy to improving neighborhood parks and trails. There are multiple opportunities to volunteer, and everyone is invited! From pulling targeted invasive weeds in parks, to teaching dance classes at recreation centers, or simply writing a letter to the editor, we have a way for you to volunteer to support our local parks.
Here’s how you can get started:
- Check out the Parks & Recreation Department Volunteer Page for information on ongoing programs
- Visit our Neighborhood Park Fix-Its page and our events page for upcoming volunteer opportunities
- Reach out to Volunteer Coordinator Mirna Estrada at EstradaM@muni.org or 907.343.4587
We are currently completing priority improvements identified during our 2008 and 2011 Parks Report Card initiative in which over 1,000 Anchorage residents rated our neighborhood parks.
