About

The Guadalupe River Park Conservancy provides community leadership for the development and active use of the Guadalupe River Park & Gardens through education, advocacy and stewardship. As part of our stewardship, we are looking for volunteers who have the availability and flexibility to be a general support to the volunteer coordinator when workdays are scheduled. Workdays occur on an as needed basis and are most often playing host to regional corporate groups, mostly from the tech industry.

Typical work days involve working in our Heritage Rose Garden, historic orchard, cleanups along the Guadalupe River Trail, and general park beautification of the grounds the Guadalupe River Park Conservancy oversees. Tasks involved on the workdays include, but are not limited to:

  • Weeding
  • Mulching
  • Removal of spent roses (deadheading)
  • Pruning
  • Litter pickup
  • Other tasks as needed

The Conservancy is seeking volunteers who can help on an as needed basis, either for a few hours in the morning and/or afternoon on weekdays, with some notice. Lead volunteers will typically manage a portion of a workday group (15-30 people) in the above tasks, as well as assist with returning equipment to their proper place at the visitor center.

If you genuinely enjoy working with others, teaching people from all walks of life, and working outdoors, then you might be the kind of person we are looking for! Even better if you have knowledge of horticulture, gardening, landscaping, or similar activities, though not necessarily required. Minimum age of 18 years old is required.

If you are interested in this volunteer opportunity, or would like to know more, please contact us at volunteers@grpg.org
