Become a Park Volunteer
Looking for fun, fresh air, and a chance to make a difference? Then consider volunteering at Discovery Green! There are a number of opportunities throughout the week that your support at Discovery Green would be most appreciated.
UHD Thursday Concerts
Four Volunteers needed to help set up the Discovery Green Information booth, greet guests as they enter the park, help guide seating on the hill, and help staff the Info booth to distribute brochures, sell merchandise and collect email addresses for the park’s weekly e-blast. Shifts are 6pm – 8:30pm.
Discovery Green Flea by Night
Volunteers are needed to help set up a Discovery Green Info booth, give
information out to vendors and patrons, and to help in other various
ways as necessary. Volunteers are needed before, during and after the
Flea Market. Shifts are 4pm - 6pm, 6pm – 8pm, and 8pm – 10pm.
Recycling at Discovery Green takes place every Saturday from 10am to 2pm. Recycling volunteers help patrons take items out of their cars so they don’t have to park to recycle. Volunteers will also help ensure that the items are put into the correct recycling bins. Volunteers choose between two shifts: 11am - 12:30pm or 12:30pm - 2pm.
There are a variety of Signature Events at the park. They are generally held on Fridays and Saturdays in the Spring and Fall. Each one is different and unique, so volunteer duties will vary.
General Volunteer Information
Volunteers should arrive about
10-15 minutes before their shift to allow time to go into the office,
meet the Discovery Green volunteer leader, get a Volunteer T-shirt and
instructions. Parking is $1.25 per hour at the meters around the park Monday through
Saturday (and free after 6 p.m.). Parking lots are about
$5.00 and up. Always read the posted signs, which supersede any
instruction from park staff.
