Volunteers in the Parks

Volunteers play an important role in stewarding state parks

The Baker-Polito Administration and Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) are grateful to individuals, Friends of the Parks, environmental, corporate, civic and religious groups who volunteer to protect and enhance the Commonwealth’s shared natural, cultural, and recreational resources.


DCR has updated guidance and release information for Volunteers in the Parks land stewardship projects.  Out of an abundance of caution for volunteers, visitors and staff, not all volunteer projects can be accommodated.  Requests to volunteer for land stewardship projects are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Please read the COVID-19 Advisory for Volunteering within the Massachusetts State Parks System to ensure you can comply before completing the online forms.
