How Can I Get Involved?

There are many ways you can get involved in the Action Plan for our County Parks:

  • Contact the Allegheny County Parks Foundation. 
  • Adopt-A-Park, Adopt-A-Tree, Adopt-A-Trail or Plant-A-Tree.
    By adopting a park or a trail you can help beautify our parks by volunteering for small improvements and litter clean-up, Adopting or planting a tree can be an excellent school project or done in memory of a friend or loved one. Contact us at

  • Volunteer at one of the Nature Centers.
    Boyce Park, Harrison Hills, North Park and South Park have opportunities for you to share your passion for native habitat and wildlife in our parks.
  • Attend a Council of Friends meeting.
    Contribute your thoughts and excitement about your favorite Park at a Council of Friends meeting. Check the meeting schedule for their next meeting.

We want to thank you for the time, effort and invaluable information you contribute toward this effort.
