From March through October, there are an array of volunteer opportunities with Salt Lake County Open Space for individuals and groups of all ages and
abilities interested in environmental stewardship.
Check out our current options and contact us to set up an event or get involved!
For single day events, please contact us two weeks ahead
of your desired volunteer event. During summer months we recommend activities to take place in the morning or late afternoon to avoid exposure to high
temperatures. We also recommend events last between two and three hours, and take
place from Monday –Thursday. Some weekends may be available.
Possible day activities: Removing myrtle spurge, planting
native seeds and seedling, removing graffiti, cleaning up litter, and cutting
down invasive trees like Russian olive and tamarisk. Let us know if you have a
creative project idea for one of our open space sites.
Through this free program, a group or an organization can
adopt an open space area of any size to restore, revitalize, and maintain. We
request that groups conduct at least one project at their adopted site per
quarter, and have members of the group occasionally hike the area outside of
scheduled events to help us keep an eye on how things are going.

We welcome highly motivated Eagle Scouts to assist us in Open Space projects.
Possible Eagle Scout projects: building benches, building informational
kiosks at trail heads, putting up beaver cages around cottonwoods on the Jordan
River, and leading a conservation
project (removal of invasive plants and replacing them with natives).
love to hear your unique proposals as well! Contact James with project ideas or questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
