Jesse Jones Park Volunteers

Volunteers fill a number of roles at Jones Park, from giving children a fun learning experience about nature or Texas history to sharing their talents behind the scenes. If you enjoy the outdoors, like working with people, or have a special skill, consider becoming a Jesse Jones Park Volunteer (JJPV)! Training is provided as needed and no previous experience is necessary.

Volunteer Goals:

  • To support Jesse H. Jones Park & Nature Center by assisting in the recruitment and training of volunteers,

  • To help educate children and the general public in natural and pioneer history,

  • To assist with the construction and maintenance of park trails and facilities,

  • To raise funds to help support the programs and development of the park, and

  • To provide support and assistance when requested by the park staff in any other area of endeavor in the park or relevant to the operation of the park.
