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. 
Many of our volunteer programs are on hold at this time due to COVID-19. We are still accepting volunteer applications, but they will be held until we can resume training and orientation for new volunteers. Applicants will receive updates as we reopen our volunteer programs.
One program that is currently 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 and roadsides to pick up litter as their schedule allows.
You can help keep the Forest Preserves of DuPage County clean, enjoy the outdoors and become a DuPage forest preserve volunteer now while you’re waiting for your program of choice to reopen. Stay safe and many thanks for your interest in volunteering with us!
Please note: Volunteer hours do not count toward court-ordered community service.
