Group and One-time Volunteer Opportunities

Are you interested in donating your time and talents to Medina County Park District but do not want to make a long-term commitment? Medina County Park District is happy to offer group and one-time volunteer opportunities for those seeking to give back to the community. Projects vary by season and need from park staff. Below is a list of projects that groups or individuals have helped with in the past. If you are interested, please contact the volunteer coordinator to ask about opportunities that are happening within the parks by calling 330-239-4814 or e-mailing volunteercoordinator@roadrunner.com.

Independent Park Cleanup

Park cleanups offer great flexibility in scheduling your group. Your group leaders will be in charge of facilitating your group with instructions provided by park district staff. You may perform your cleanup at any of our parks during posted hours. Your help is needed to ensure that this protected land is free of litter and debris that could threaten plants and wildlife. Cleanups involve picking up litter along the trails, ponds, and pavilions, moving small sticks or branches off trails, and alerting park staff to any maintenance issues. 

Invasive Species

Help remove invasive plant species in our parks during regularly-scheduled pulls in the early spring months. If left untreated, invasive plant species can take over an area in less than ten years, changing the dynamic of ecosystems and creating an unbalanced food chain with detrimental effects to native plant and wildlife species.

Tree/Seed Plantings

Natural resource department staff enlists the help of volunteer groups with tree plantings in various parks.   Using seeds collected by long-term volunteers, our natural resource department was able to plant tens of acres of native tree species in 2012. We hope to continue to be able to plant native species with the help of group volunteers.

In addition to the above projects, groups have assisted park staff with trail maintenance and construction, building of bridges, and adoption of garden and wildlife habitat stations.
