Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Phil Hardberger Park. Do you like working with kids? Digging in the dirt? Sharing all that you know and love about the park?
We have volunteer opportunities for all sorts of interests and abilities.
Do your part to help fight nature deficit disorder! Our weekday nature programs are offered to children 18-months to 14 years old. Each program is planned and led by staff. You would help set up the morning of the class and assist with the kid-friendly activity. Each child is accompanied by an adult, so no babysitting is required. Help is also needed in the Children’s Vegetable Garden on Tuesdays and with programs for children and adults on Saturday mornings.
Contact: David Jimenez, Education Coordinator, email@example.com.
Here is your chance to get your hands dirty as a Weed Warrior. The land of Phil Hardberger Park needs constant management to keep its natural beauty. Invasive species such as chinaberry trees from the Salado Creek Greenway and non-native grasses are a persistent problem throughout the park.
Wednesday Weed Warriors meet every Wednesday at various locations.

If you enjoy chatting with folks and pointing them in the right direction, this is the job for you. Each Saturday the PHP Conservancy has a representative in the park to answer general questions about the park, its trails, its programs, and the Conservancy. Greeters welcome visitors on both sides of the park, at the Salado building and at the PHP Urban Ecology Center. As a new volunteer, you would be paired with someone familiar with the park.
