Darke County Parks relies upon volunteer involvement
in all aspects of our operations, from programs to maintenance. Descriptions of volunteer opportunities are listed on this page. After basic training, and the required paperwork, volunteers can set up a customized work schedule. Completed volunteer applications should be mailed to the Nature Center. For more info, contact our Volunteer Coordinator or fill out an application on the left.
Volunteer in the Spotlight
Meet Kathy Cool, this quarters Volunteer in the Spotlight. Kathy said what initially brought her to Darke County Parks was her love of nature, office work, and wanting to have a “volunteer” job established before she actually retired. It’s my enjoyment of nature, birding, and not to mention the employees of Darke County Parks that keeps me returning to volunteer. “I really love everything about the Park District and just want the parks to keep doing what they are doing!” Thanks Kathy, we love your willingness to help and enjoy your company.
