Immediate volunteer needs

Website Blogger & Photographer

Silverwood Park’s new website needs a person or two who can help FoSP tell the public what’s happening at the park. Do you have writing skills or photography as a hobby?

Invasive Species Removal

The quest to rid the park of buckthorn, honeysuckle, thistle and other problem plants is on-going. Join our conservation volunteers in outdoor work that includes restoration of the old oak savanna!

Friends Board Member

FoSP seeks active community members who are interested in supporting the park long-term by serving on our Board of Directors, including attending meetings and strategizing to fulfill the park mission.
