Late Arrival Policy

Piedmont Park Conservancy greatly values the time and effort our volunteers donate to the park. Volunteers work closely with Piedmont Park Conservancy staff to complete horticulture and maintenance projects that are vital to the preservation of Piedmont Park. Therefore, we request that all of our volunteers arrive at the assigned time. Volunteers who arrive late or unannounced disrupts our project work schedule, therefore any volunteers who arrive more than 20 minutes late will not be able to volunteer and will be asked to reschedule their volunteer shift.
