Volunteer - New Orleans City Park

Volunteer


City Park Conservancy is the only organization that tends to the full care of City Park and we rely on volunteers like you to help us keep the park looking great. Our volunteers are essential to the day-to-day operation of City Park. When you volunteer your time as an individual or as part of a group, it is one of the most valuable contributions you can make to City Park, and you are building a better, stronger park for all of our visitors to enjoy.

Super Saturdays

On the first Saturday of each month, New Orleans City Park hosts a community volunteering event!  Individuals, friends, families, service groups, college organizations, and more come together in a day of service to contribute to the revitalization of City Park. Super Saturday locations and projects vary from month to month

Urban Forest Support Initiative

Volunteers participate in forestry projects including trail clearing and removal of vines, Camphor and Tallow saplings, and overgrowth surrounding native species of trees in Couturie Forest. Tasks include identifying native trees and removing surrounding vines and invasive plant species encroaching on their resources with hand saws, loppers, and hand-pruners. By supporting native tree health, volunteers promote ecosystems that our natural to our area, benefiting local wildlife and our community.

Big Lake Native Plant Trail Restoration Project

This weekly volunteer project involves accomplishing various detailed horticulture tasks led by NPI and City Park staff members. Volunteers will participate in horticulture activities including native plant identification, hand-weeding, removal of plant debris, mulching, pruning, and other related tasks needed to restore and maintain native plant beds along the Big Lake Native Plant Trail.

Clean-Up Krewes

Community members help the Grounds and Horticulture Department to maintain the beauty of the Park with the goal of garnering public support through volunteerism, awareness, and partnerships.  Volunteers will support this initiative by cleaning up litter, removal of graffiti and storm drain clearings.  

Event Support

Volunteers are crucial to the success of our events because they help things run smoothly and ensure that every attendee has a great time. Our annual fundraisers directly help us keep the Park a thriving green oasis and a respite for all visitors.
