Urban EcoStewards

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. 

Interested in taking part? Apply here to be an Urban EcoSteward.

All new EcoStewards are required to attend at least one training. These trainings are free and open to the public. Find upcoming trainings here.
