Virginia State Parks offer volunteer opportunities in September

If you are looking for an opportunity to volunteer in September, Virginia State Parks has some ideas for you.

Groups and individuals are invited to help beautify parks, maintain trails, clear shoreline debris and participate in other activities.

The opportunity is called Stewardship Virginia and it is a semi-annual statewide initiative to help citizens with projects that enhance and conserve Virginia’s natural and cultural resources.

Volunteers who participate in Stewardship Virginia projects even receive a certificate of appreciation from Gov. Terry McAuliffe!

Fall Stewardship Virginia is Sept. 1 – Oct. 31 and it is coordinated by the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation.

If you would like to volunteer click here for more information. Some events require advance registration.
