Urban EcoStewards give back by caring for park land and greenspaces
EcoStewards adopt and care for areas in the parks and in their communities.
With training and support from organizations throughout Pittsburgh, Urban EcoSteward volunteers adopt and care for sites in parks or in their communities. These volunteers visit their adopted sites as often as they're able throughout the year to remove invasive plants, care for trees, clear trash, and much more.

Urban EcoSteward trainings are led by program partners and are designed to help you develop the skills and knowledge needed to care for parks and greenspaces.
