About Park Serve Day

What started in 2006 as a day of Stewardship in Massachusetts has grown in to an annual event with thousands of participants!

Each year during Earth Week, DCR invites volunteers to Massachusetts state parks to take part in stewardship activities to prepare for the busy spring and summer recreation season. Park Serve day is your opportunity to help tend to your favorite state park by getting involved in a clean-up, painting, or other restorative project for one day. Parks across the Commonwealth decide on projects and invite volunteers for a day of work and fun.
