Forestry - Volunteer Work DaysThe Forestry Division, in coordination with the Fredrick Olmsted Society of Riverside, wishes to invite you to participate in Landscape Volunteer Workdays. Throughout the spring, summer and fall, one or two Saturdays each month is designated as a volunteer work day. Contact the Village Forester at 708 442-3590 ext 502 for more information.
Work always begins at 9:00 am and continues until noon. As a member of the Forestry’s volunteer team you will work in many of the parks and public lands throughout the Village. Training is provided as a part of each workday.
The most important benefit to volunteering is the immeasurable satisfaction derived from being a member of Riverside’s conservation team. Fill out a Volunteer Application and a Volunteer Waiver. Must be at least 18 years of age, or obtain written consent of parent or guardian.
