    The Greenbelt Conservancy mission is to promote, sustain, and enhance Staten Island's 2,800-acre Greenbelt through education, recreation, conservation and research. The Greenbelt works in partnership with New York City Parks.

    Volunteering in the Greenbelt is not only a great way to get involved in your community, it’s a great way to get to know one of New York City’s largest and most beautiful parks.  We are  grateful to our dedicated volunteers whose efforts make a huge difference in our park.

    As you might expect, many of our volunteer projects take place outdoors along our trails system and in natural areas.  Volunteers are also a key component at special events such as the High Rock Challenge Adventure Race in April.

    There are some indoor opportunities performing clerical or docent duties available.

    If your time is limited, you might consider working on a one-time project such as “It’s Your Park Day.”  If time is not an issue, then consider volunteering for a seasonal or a year-round position.
