The Oswegoland community has a great tradition of having involved residents. The Park District has benefited from thousands of community members who help with parks, programs, and events every year. Our volunteers donate their time and talents maintaining our natural areas, coaching youth sports, keeping runners on course, and making special events like PrairieFest even more special for their family, friends, and neighbors.
Help with the Pantry Garden program or with various projects throughout the year including seed collection, cleaning, planting, invasive species clearing, and other conservation activities.
All year. Flexible days & times.

Coach our youth sport programs. Seasoned coaches or brand new to the game, we welcome all volunteers. We provide training and support throughout the season. If you have the desire to help children in the community, energy and enthusiasm to teach, and the willingness to have fun, be a volunteer coach.
