Volunteer With the Forest Preserve District

With scores of options, the Forest Preserve District's volunteer program offers something for any interest for individuals and groups alike. 
Good News! We are beginning to reopen some of our volunteer programs, mainly those with outdoor opportunities or open-air buildings. Some programs are still on hold due to COVID-19 and we hope to resume them once more restrictions are lifted.

Please submit your volunteer application and we will contact you about start dates and training sessions.
One program that is always accepting new volunteers is our “Cleanup Crew” position in Special Services. This is an independent, flexible position where volunteers are given a safety vest, shirt, gloves, litter-picker, and bags to walk the trails, shorelines and roadsides to pick up litter as their schedule allows.
With the preserves being utilized even more this last year, we can really use your assistance. You can help keep DuPage forest preserves clean, enjoy the outdoors and become a DuPage forest preserve volunteer now!

Stay safe and many thanks for your interest in volunteering with us. We look forward to hearing from you!

Please note: Volunteer hours do not count toward court-ordered community service.
