All of the tours, field trips, programs, and festivals offered at Jones Park are free of charge. This is only possible through extensive community support. To expand and continue the level of free programming at Jones Park, experts, professionals, and teachers who specialize in natural science, conservation, and Texas history-related fields are needed to assist with or present lectures, tours, and workshops.
From behind-the-scenes assistance to tour guides, demonstrators, and historians at festivals, volunteers are needed in almost every imaginable aspect of the park’s operations. Smaller groups interested in becoming involved at the park are encouraged to volunteer together.
Another important factor that allows Jones Park to offer free programming is monetary sponsorships through the Jesse Jones Park Volunteers (JJPV). Sponsors can support the park by funding theatrical, musical, and stage performances, contest awards and give-aways for the Volunteer Appreciation Party, Fishing Derby, Photo Contest, Haunted Homestead, and an Old-Fashioned Christmas.
Businesses, groups, and organizations that are interested in making visible, in-kind contributions can participate in the Adopt-A-Trail program, or other conservation projects.
