Volunteers Make It Happen!

Volunteering is a rewarding way for citizens to be engaged in their favorite parks. Those who volunteer their time for Cincinnati Parks directly contribute to a more vibrant and healthy community. After donating 355 hours of his time, local Boy Scout, Dean Pearson recently completed a deer exclosure at Mt. Airy Forest as his Eagle Scout project. Luckily, Dean completed the project just before his 18th birthday (a requirement for Eagle Scout honors). Deer exclosures are used as a preventative method of keeping wildlife out of a certain area. This exclosure will protect native plant growth such as seedlings and wildflowers for years to come. Thank you Dean for all of your hard work and dedication!

Volunteers make it happen. We can not do it without you! To learn more on how you can become an engaged volunteer strengthening your community, please visit our Volunteering Page.
