  • 67 people are interested

Help support Hermann Park Conservancy by volunteering at the 7th Annual Park to Port Bike Ride on Saturday, November 13, 2021 from 7:00 AM to ~12:00 PM.

Volunteers are needed to assist with wayfinding- an incredibly important job that may seem simple, but keeps bikers on the correct route. Wayfinders are positioned with 2+ individuals along the route to help guide and cheer along participants. Duties will change from wayfinding to post party tear down once the event concludes around 11:00-11:30 AM.

Volunteers must be 13 years old or older and comfortable standing for an extended period of time.

About Hermann Park Conservancy

Mission Statement

The Hermann Park Conservancy is a citizens' organization dedicated to the stewardship and improvement of Hermann Park - today and for generations to come.

Description

In a city increasingly effected by the problems of a deteriorating environment, including pollution, climate change, vanishing plant and animal species, urban sprawl, there is a critical need to restore our urban green spaces. An urban green space provides a range of tangible benefits, such as mitigating air and water pollution, combating suburban sprawl, providing opportunities for recreation, reducing crime and fostering cohesive neighborhoods. Unfortunately, Urban Green Spaces are often the first public works to be hit by budget crunches. The aforementioned issues have all adversely affected Hermann Park. In order to simply maintain the park in its current condition, a 22,000 hour gap of needed maintenance must be filled.

The Hermann Park Conservancy was implemented to help fill this gap. The City of Houston's Parks and Recreation department does a great job with resources provided to them. However, due to the limited supply of man hours, many projects do not get the proper attention. Therefore, HPC continues to look for volunteers to lend a helping hand.

The exciting part of trying to fill this great need is that there are many opportunities that can accommodate any one. If you have a desire to help your community, please contact us!
