Monthly Volunteer Workdays

Lend a hand to Buffalo Bayou Partnership! Volunteers are invited to help care for Buffalo Bayou’s parks and trails. Each year, volunteers contribute thousands of hours removing invasive plants, weeding, planting native vegetation, picking up trash and debris and other tasks as needed. BBP’s restoration and beautification activities lead to a healthier environment and provide an enhanced recreational and cultural amenity for all to enjoy.

For our Monthly Volunteer Workdays (held on the 3rd Saturday of each month), we will allow up to 10 household groups (up to five people living together) but no more than a total of 25 people. Each group will work in separate designated areas. Any participant under age 18 will need a waiver signed by a parent/guardian. For this time period, children ages six to nine years old will be allowed to volunteer in a family unit with the parent/guardian present.


To sign up to volunteer, please submit a waiver below at least two business days in advance to ensure the requested volunteer day and time. Anyone under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian complete the online waiver or print out a waiver and bring with you.

New this year! Individuals and small family/household groups are invited to help with tasks such as weeding or spreading mulch. Select weeks are available and time slots can be reserved Wednesday through Friday from 8am to 12pm. We request a minimum of two hours per day, but up to no more than four hours. Please fill out this form to request a Weekday Volunteer Day for yourself or family. Questions can be directed to Steve Parker, Volunteer Coordinator, at volunteer@buffalobayou.org.
