Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteers help to supplement Sandusky County Park District staff in various roles throughout our park system. Volunteers also assist at our many events during the year. Below is a comprehensive list of many of our opportunities. 

 

Adopt-a-Park Help keep a designated area 

within the parks litter-free. Great task for groups and families to do together and make sure your park gets the special attention it deserves. 

Adopt-a-Trail
Adopt a section of the North Coast Inland Trail and participate in clean-ups at least three times a year to keep it litter-free. 

Habitat, Gardening, Landscaping
If you have a green thumb, then this is the job for you. Help provide gardening support on various projects throughout the parks. This job will focus on completing the theme gardens at the Nature Center in 2016. 

Nature Center at Creek Bend Farm
Greeting visitors and answering the phone at the Wilson Nature Center.

Parades, Displays, Expos
If you enjoy talking to people and sharing what you love about the Park District, we would love your help at these events. You could help staff information tables at public events, or smile & wave in area parades. 

Program Assistant
Lend a hand to the Naturalists as they explore the creek, fields, and forests, sharing nature with children of all ages. 

Quilters & Crafters
Join in creating a yo-yo quilt, or assist with log cabin projects such as rug making, basket weaving, and more. 

Research
Assist in research being done in the parks including bird banding, fish trapping, monarch tagging, and canoeing with eagles. 

Special Events
