Current Volunteer Opportunities

Tech Support for Fall Classes
As many Fall programs temporarily move online, Ashland Parks and Recreation Commission is seeking volunteers who are interested in providing simple tech assistance to community members. If you have an understanding of platforms such as Zoom, and feel comfortable explaining them to others remotely, you could make the difference in ensuring online programming is available for all. With flexible scheduling, you decide how much time to commit. In the event that an APRC class requires real time support, you could attend the program free of charge. 

Work Parties
Volunteers are needed to join in on semi-regular “work parties”. No experience necessary! Volunteers meet at a park in Ashland for two hours of maintenance to keep our parks functional and beautiful. Refreshments and tools are provided. Numbers are limited to allow for physical distancing. To be added to the email list please contact Sulaiman Shelton at 541.552.2264 or email.

Park Maintenance
Interested in volunteering but feel more comfortable working solo? Ashland Parks and Recreation is seeking volunteers to tackle projects across our park system. From fix-it projects, weeding and pruning, to small carpentry projects there are always things to be done to improve our lovely parks! Hours are flexible. For more information please contact Sulaiman Shelton at 541.552.2264 or email.

Nature Center Gardeners
Gardeners are always needed at the North Mountain Park Nature Center Demonstration Gardens. Have fun gardening in a group on Wednesday mornings or come out on your own.  Tools and friendly training provided.
