Fun and exciting
service-learning opportunities await your school at our 21 parks and preserves.
Great Parks’ staff and volunteers will work onsite with students to create a
memorable, hands-on learning experience. To start the process, please fill out

Please note: Due to limited project availability and park resources, applications will be evaluated based on group size, project feasibility and will be assessed on first-come, first-served basis. Great Parks will not be able to accept all projects, but encourages schools to reapply as often as they would like.
All projects require a signed waiver for each student and chaperone in order to participate. Ages 18 and under must have an additional parent/guardian signature.
