Volunteer with Friends of Shelby
Volunteers are an integral part of achieving our mission to preserve, protect and enhance Shelby Park and Bottoms. The Friends of Shelby could not make an impact in the park without the volunteerism of individuals and groups that give back to the park each year. Volunteers impact the park by performing a number of activities including planting, landscaping, pruning, maintaining footpaths, clearing brush as well as assisting with fundraising, special events and administrative tasks.
Thank you for your interest in caring for Shelby Park and Bottoms!
The Friends of Shelby volunteer program is divided into two parts:
Second Saturday Volunteer Program
On the second Saturday of every month, there is some way to help care for Shelby Park and Bottoms. Projects are generally open to anyone over 12 years of age and offer a variety of opportunities to fit many capabilities.
Community Group Volunteer Program
Friends of Shelby loves to work with groups. Whether it's your ten-person office or your 100 person church, we can find a project that suits you. Friends of Shelby helps coordinate the project and provides tools, gloves, and work project assignments to match the size and capabilities of any volunteer group. Each volunteer day begins with an orientation including the goals of the park improvement effort, tool training, and general safety rules.
