Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are critical to keeping Overton Park clean and beautiful! Here are a few ways to get involved:

  • Volunteers are always needed to pick up trash. Just bring your bags, gloves, and grabbers and go for a walk. The most affected areas are usually along the areas where the park abuts major roads like East Parkway and Poplar Avenue.
  • Watch our event calendar for upcoming public volunteer days.
    • There are no upcoming opportunities at  this  time.
  • Most of our group volunteer days are part of a corporate sponsorship program. Companies can sponsor a day in Overton Park for $1,000, and we’ll hang a special banner up and host a company volunteer event. Click here to learn more.
  • Consider joining our invasive plant removal crew. Led by Bill Bullock, this team meets throughout the year (but especially in winter) to remove harmful non-native plants like Chinese privet, English ivy, and Japanese honeysuckle from the Old Forest.
