Program Update

In response to COVID-19, volunteers and volunteer applications are not being accepting at this time for Hillsborough County Parks.

When the program resumes, we will put up the applications again.

A variety of volunteer opportunities are available through Parks, Recreation & Conservation.

Eligibility

Applicants must be at least 16 years old to volunteer, or be a member of a pre-approved group such as Scouts or 4-H. Volunteers must provide their own transportation.

Guidance

Volunteers are always needed in these areas:

  • Adopt-A-Spot: Commitment to maintain a park or roadway. Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful manages volunteers for this program.
  • Conservation: Assist with habitat restoration, trail blazing, removal of invasive species,  and site clean-ups.
  • Parks: Opportunities include park maintenance, beautification, interpretive programs, and special projects.
  • Recreation: Work with children in out-of-school-time programs, teen programs, senior activities, preschool-age tiny tots, and more.
  • Special Events: Help with coastal and river clean-up, family fun days, bike and road races, Scout projects, and the annual Tampa Bay Active Life Games.
  • Therapeutic Recreation: Volunteer for HC Adaptive Sports, out-of-school-time programs, the Special Olympics, Camp Sparks Summer Program, and the Bakas Equestrian Center.

How To
