Lincoln Park Conservancy

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 18 people are interested
Lily Pool
The Historic Pavilion in Spring

Bring your work or social group out to Lincoln Park to help us restore and maintain the beautiful landscapes and natural areas of this historic and expansive park. Groups plant trees, shrubs, and native wildflowers and grasses; mulch around park trees; collect litter; weed invasive species, and perform other essential tasks. Smaller groups (15 people or less) can volunteer inside the Conservatory, helping staff on a variety of projects.

No pre-training is necessary, as our expert staff lead a quick, educational demonstration on what we're doing and why. We can cater to most groups' time, size, and schedule demands, with most workdays lasting around 2 hours and taking place on weekday mornings - just call/email us to find out!

Outdoor workdays are possible between March 1st and November 30th, pending weather.

Donations suggested but not mandatory. For corporate groups, please determine before contacting us whether your office has a corporate donation match or foundational donation program. We only plant at certain times of year (late-April to late-June and early September to mid-October) for the plants' sake, and if your groups requires additional plants, donations are more necessary. Lincoln Park Conservancy provides gloves, tools, and the necessary supervision for the workday.

Please contact Aaron Hammond at (773) 883-PARK or ahammond@lincolnparkconservancy.org to discuss and schedule your workday! Also, save us some time by filling out this pre-survey: https://forms.gle/rHooyE22gkYtTcRc9
