Since 2015, Westchester Parks Foundation has engaged nearly 10,000 members of our community to volunteer in the Westchester County park system, contributing nearly 30,000 hours of service.

Our volunteer program is ideal for students who need to earn volunteer credits for school or religious education requirements, for scout troops on the lookout for a great project, or for anyone who just wants to put their skills to good use. Be an environmental steward as you give back to the parks and trails you love.

If you are interested in becoming involved on a regular basis, we offer monthly programs, March through November. With our “Green Squad”, WPF offers a volunteer project at rotating locations around the park system. This program allows volunteers to work across many of the over 50 parks we have in Westchester County and become active on a consistent basis.

In 2017, through the generous funding of Thalle Industries, we started our Graffiti Squad. This group works in select locations on the Bronx River Reservation to remove graffiti at least twice per month. We use an eco-friendly solution to scrub off the graffiti, preserving the natural beauty that our residents enjoy on the trailway. Contact us for more information!
