In today’s digital world, it’s easy to stay tuned into your devices but disconnected from the outside world. There are a million-and-one excuses to stay connected to your emails, notifications or routine, but spring has sprung and there’s no better place than D.C. to shake those winter blues.
With over 8,000 acres of parkland in the District according to the Trust for Public Land, there is probably a park or green space closer to you than you think. Not sure where to find it? You don’t have to navigate D.C.’s urban jungle on your own. By getting involved with Washington Parks & People, you can connect with nature and community near you and across the city.
Since 1990, Washington Parks & People has transformed more than 230 neglected public areas into thriving community green spaces across all eight wards of D.C. Washington Parks & People is focused on empowering all D.C. residents to reconnect not only with nature, but with each other and their neighborhoods.
By becoming a volunteer, you can take part in the positive transformation of D.C. outdoor spaces. From community gardening, to invasive species removal and administrative support, there are opportunities for individuals with diverse skillsets and goals.
As a volunteer, you will have a direct impact on your city by helping to promote communities’ access to essentials such as fresh, healthy food and outdoor wellness. You can also build applicable skills to help you achieve your personal and professional goals. You can gain valuable experience in service and leadership, urban gardening and agriculture, building and landscaping, or marketing and fundraising.
