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 John and Darlene Dillon, this quarter’s Volunteers
in the Spotlight! As active members of the Friends of
the Darke County Parks, John and Darlene have been
volunteering for several years with many different park
activities. Their favorite part of volunteering is the
enjoyment they get from meeting and working with a variety of people while supporting park events like
Prairie Days and Nature Day. In the future, John and Darlene think that keeping up the park trails will encourage more people to use the parks more regularly. Thank you,
John and Darlene, for your hard work and dedication!
