The day of service program is an opportunity for conservation-minded groups to earn volunteer hours while directly assisting Jones Park in serving our community in the areas of environmental and Texas education.
Any group can help, including scouts, schools, church groups, home-school groups, conservation organizations, companies in need of volunteer hours for their employees, etc. Children 16 and under are welcome to volunteer as long as a parent or adult leader volunteers alongside them.
We will schedule your program on the day that fits your needs. Groups will be assigned a priority project in Jones Park based on their interests, group size, and abilities. A wide range of service projects are needed, including historical building construction, trail maintenance, habitat restoration, and litter collection.
No experience is necessary. A park ranger will provide training and guidance.
