Urban EcoStewards give back to their communities by caring for park land.
EcoStewards adopt a section of park land to maintain.
With training and support from Parks Conservancy staff and program partners, EcoStewards visit their site throughout the year to remove invasive species, plant native flora, slow erosion, and clean up trash.
Urban EcoSteward trainings and events are free and open to all. Trainings are led by an Urban EcoSteward partner organization and are designed to help you develop the skills and knowledge needed to care for parks and greenspaces.
