Adopt a Park
Big Falls at Wadsworth Falls State Park, Middlefield
Adopt a Park provides an opportunity for volunteers interested in a long term commitment to serve and maintain an area or attractive feature of the park they love. This program also provides the opportunity for other groups or individuals to support their favorite park through a dedicated, targeted, and recognized financial donation.
Adopting a park isnít just about work. It can be a lot of fun! Adopting volunteers can plan a picnic, a hike, outdoor games and other activities when they serve.

Guests will enjoy a safer, more pleasant experience and a more fun adventure in our parks!
To build a closer, stronger community! - Volunteer service is essential to creating stronger communities. Be part of a service that makes a visible, tangible difference!
To help the environment! - With your service, you can help keep our local wildlife safe, retain their habitat, and help us control invasive species.
Who can adopt?
Individuals of all ages, community groups, youth groups, special interest groups, corporations, schools, agencies and families are all welcomed to choose and adopt a park. Youth 16 and under must be supervised by a responsible adult at all times during the activity.
Where can I adopt?
Not all parks may be available for adoption. Some have less volunteer involvement, and are in great need for assistance during the busy season. Please contact us to confirm what parks are available for adoption.
Can I support a park with a financial donation?
Yes, a new program is being launched that allows financial donations from individuals, companies or other organization to be made directly to a park. Those resources will be available to assist at that park, and will be acknowledged with signage at the park for a specified period of time. See additional programs details
