Volunteer at Mill Creek MetroParks

Due to the current pandemic, all volunteer opportunities have been suspended until further notice. Individuals interested in becoming a new volunteer are still able to submit their application and background check forms for processing during this time, although opportunities will not be available until further notice. 

We are fortunate to have the gift of people’s time and talents to support our activities. Volunteering at Mill Creek MetroParks is a way of giving back to your community while enjoying nature and fellowship.

The MetroParks welcomes volunteers of various ages. Students ages 13 and up may assist staff with MetroParks camps and special recreational events. Bicycle enthusiasts can volunteer their time with the MetroParks Police in patrolling the MetroParks Bikeway. Gardeners can lend their green thumbs to Fellows Riverside Gardens for annual bed plantings. If you love dogs, then lend a “paw” to MetroMutts and volunteer at dog programs and hikes. No matter where your interests lead you, if you have the time, we welcome your help.
