Urban EcoSteward Program

Urban EcoStewards give back to their communities by volunteering to care for park land. 

EcoStewards adopt a specific section of park land to maintain. They receive training from Parks Conservancy staff and other program partners and visit their site throughout the year to remove invasive species, plant native flora, slow erosion, and clean up trash.  If you are interested in becoming an Urban EcoSteward, fill out an application and volunteer contract. Email completed forms to volunteer@pittsburghparks.org.

All new EcoStewards are required to attend at least one training. These trainings are free and open to the public. Click here for a list of upcoming trainings.
