Park Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer in our parks!

Do you like to work outdoors and learn about nature? Then come join Green Keepers, a new volunteer corps of citizen gardeners launched by the Webster Groves Parks Department to help maintain our parks as beautiful, safe green spaces that encourage all residents to explore, learn, rest, and play.

Green Keepers can participate in a wide variety of activities ranging from gardening and clean up to planting and seed saving to invasive removal and land restoration. No special experience is required; only enthusiasm and a love for Webster’s rich green space heritage. Parks staff will teach you all you need to know for specific projects and provide tools on-site.
