Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering in the Greenbelt is not only a great way to get involved in your community, it’s a great way to get to know one of New York City’s largest and most beautiful parks.  Many of our volunteer projects take place outdoors along our trail system and in natural areas. There are also indoor tasks and projects happening throughout the year. Please contact us to become involved!
