Get Involved

Friends of Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens invites you to get involved in our efforts to help the National Park Service maintain, share, and improve the park. With nearly 700 acres to manage, rangers appreciate and value a few hours of your time to keep this extraordinary park healthy and ready for visitors. 

We offer a wide range of volunteer opportunities. Some options require training and a commitment of time, but others are as easy as registering and showing up. Either way, it’s a great way to enjoy the outdoors and meet others, as well as a fun and rewarding way to spend the day.

Questions? Contact our Volunteer & Program Coordinator, Shannah Cumberbatch, or 202-650-0455.
