Volunteering with Polk County Conservation

View the 2016 Volunteer of the Year Award Winners, here.

Volunteerism with Polk County Conservation focuses on hands-on restoration and preservation of high-quality natural areas as well as participation in ongoing construction and maintenance projects in our parks and along our trails and waterways. Volunteers work alongside conservation professionals, learning about the Iowa landscape and participating in projects that yield immediate results.

Volunteering with PCC is also a great way to lend a helping hand while enjoying the great outdoors. All community members (youth and adult) are invited to participate in a variety of activities and projects throughout the year.

Public workdays are held on a once per month minimum basis with dates posted quarterly. Private workdays are also available and can be tailored to your group’s wants, needs and schedule. No experience is necessary, and all training and equipment is provided. Please check this page to keep up-to-date on the most recent event details.

**Events and workday details are located in the tab to the left of this page.
