Volunteer opportunities with the city
Looking for a way to stay busy and give back to the community? Below are two easy, independent activities that can be done with social distancing. For more information, contact Laura Smith at email@example.com.
Pick up the Park
Help beautify St. Louis Park by picking up litter and debris from a local park or street! This is a great activity for all ages and can be done on your own time while physical distancing. Use your own bags and gloves, and place bags in the trash cans located at each park. Please stay off playground equipment and remember to stay at least six feet away from others. If bags are too large for trash cans, contact Laura Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteers are invited to post their pictures on social media and tag the city, @stlouispark!
Help us protect our lakes, streams and wetlands by adopting a storm drain and keeping it clear of leaves, trash and other debris. The simple act of sweeping up around a storm drain helps protect local lakes and rivers by preventing pollution from entering our shared waterways.
To adopt a storm drain, visit Adopt-a-Drain.org. Simply create an account with your name and address to claim your storm drain. Once you’ve signed up, Adopt-a-Storm-Drain will send you tips on how to clean up safely.
With more than 300,000 storm drains in the metro area, everyone’s help is important in making an impact! Learn more on Clean Water Minnesota's website.
Volunteer opportunities with other organizations
If you have questions about the following volunteer opportunities, contact the agency or organization listed within the description. The city does not administer these programs.
St. Louis Park School District
For volunteer opportunities with the school district, visit St. Louis Park Community Education.
St. Louis Park Historical Society
The St. Louis Park Historical Society has five open board seats they are looking to fill this September. With unprecedented history happening around us, now more than ever is a great time to help shape how we preserve our city’s history and find ways to share it with our neighbors for generations to come. No past involvement is required in the society to become a board member.
Duties of a board member can be as simple as monthly meetings and occasionally pitching in on a project, or can be as involved as weekly writing, photography or researching. There are no financial obligations besides being an active society member while on the board. If you are interested, complete the application by Sunday, Aug. 2 or email them about your interest at email@example.com. They are happy to answer any questions you may have about being a board member or our process for nominations
