Volunteers with the City of Duluth - Parks and Recreation

Volunteers are an important part of the City of Duluth Parks and Recreation Department. Each year, hundreds of volunteers give of their time and talent to support the city's parks, trails, playgrounds, and recreational facilities. Their efforts help ensure our:
- parks are clean and safe
- trails are maintained and usable
- invasive species population is kept at bay
- trees are healthy and maintained
- community is educated and informed
- recreation programs are supported and available

There are opportunities for individuals and families, as well as school, community and business groups. Volunteers of all ages and abilities are encouraged to get involved.

Individuals are invited to complete our online volunteer application.

Register your group, business or organization to volunteer by calling Cheryl Skafte at 218-730-4334.
