Get outside, get involved, help others and explore and enjoy the natural beauty of the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD). Sound like fun?
As a Comox Valley parks volunteer, you’ll play an invaluable role in the protection and management of the CVRD parks and trails. You’ll help develop and maintain park facilities, serve on committees and keep a watchful eye on what's happening in our parks.
How to get involved
The best way to get involved as a parks volunteer is by signing up to help one of our current partners with their next project. (Scroll down for a list of current partners). Contact the partner directly or let us help you find a good match based on your interests, skills, time available and energy level.
If you like taking pictures while exploring your parks, for example, you could be a volunteer photographer, helping us showcase the wonders of nature to be found within our parks. Photographs could be used on our website, park interpretive signs, trail brochures or other media.

Park volunteer safety guidelines
The safety of our volunteers is of the utmost importance. Here are two resources designed to keep you safe while volunteering within the Comox Valley’s parks and trails:
The regional district is fortunate to have the support of many local individuals and groups who volunteer their time, talents and ideas towards the maintenance and protection our park facilities. Many of the trails, bridges, boat ramps and signs within our local parks were generously created by one of our community partners.
