Volunteer with the Team RIVER (Randall’s Island Volunteer Ecological Restorers) and help keep Randall’s Island Park beautiful! Team RIVER Volunteers regularly work in with the Natural Areas team twice a month taking care of and restoring our natural spaces on the island. With our Horticulture team, volunteers care for the many gardens and meadows on the island every second Wednesday of each month. We also use volunteers to help with park maintenance and public events. If you are only able to volunteer on a limited basis, you are still very much welcome!
Volunteers must be at least 11 years old. Anyone under the age of 18 must have a waiver signed by their legal guardian before starting any work. Children under 16 must also have an adult with them while volunteering (please contact [email protected] for a copy of the waiver).
