Bring your company’s employees to volunteer on the Esplanade as part of our award-winning Volunteer Program!
Volunteering with the Esplanade Association is a great way to build team camaraderie while participating in a visible philanthropic effort to benefit a local nonprofit. Volunteers report a sense of pride caring for a public space that they are likely to return to with friends and family.

Volunteers will assist with event setup and registration, specialized horticultural tasks, office mailings, and more, based on their interests and availability throughout the year. Small groups or families are welcome to participate together!

Tree Tag Assessment
We’re looking for a volunteer for a special long-term project. If you are passionate about trees, this might be the job for you!
After a brief training, this individual would assess every tree tag in the park using a Google form; recording the ID tag and a few measurements. Your work will help us better understand the growth of park trees.
If you would be interested in assisting with this project or learning more, please contact Micah Jasny at email@example.com.
