Volunteer Opportunities with Central Park Conservancy

An associate with Rosen & Associates and a resident of New York City, Nancy L. Kourland seeks out many opportunities to improve her local community. One of the organizations that Nancy L. Kourland supports is the Central Park Conservancy. This organization largely depends on support from donors and volunteers to achieve its coal of protecting and preserving the 843 acres that comprise Central Park. Individuals can volunteer on a drop-in basis or commit themselves to long-term positions.

Volunteer opportunities with the organization allow individuals to capitalize on their skills. For example, people with a green thumb can participate in the Horticulture Program to keep the landscape beautiful by planting and pruning. Volunteers also serve as greeters and guides for the 40 million people who visit Central Park each year. Central Park Paws allows individuals to volunteer their time to organizing and operating dog-friendly programming at the park.

Specialized opportunities exist for youth, families, and companies. The Day in the Dirt program, for example, allows corporate groups to build camaraderie while making a positive impact on the community.
