Help preserve the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens, while working together in a meaningful and unique way.
Our group volunteer programs are a great team building experience for corporate groups, community organizations, youth groups, and schools. Groups are highly encouraged to join our monthly Saturday events.
Group volunteering is also available (Monday-Friday) from March-October, on a limited basis. We often have the capacity to host 100+ volunteers – so bring your whole team!
Group volunteers get their hands dirty through pond care and restoration, trash cleanups, gardening, invasive species removal, and other restoration projects. Group volunteers also develop an understanding and appreciation of Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens through informal learning opportunities with national park rangers.

These schedules can easily be adjusted and customized at any time including during the project based on your group’s needs and size, including formal breaks or adding educational components.
All tools and gloves are provided. We strongly encourage in-kind and cash donations to support the purchase of tools, supplies, and equipment to ensure all our volunteers have what they need. Snacks are provided, but lunch is on your own.
