Other Volunteer Opportunities

Community and Corporate Groups
Are you trying to find a volunteer opportunity for your school class, church, business, or work team? We are happy to arrange a time for your group to assist us in our restoration efforts. Groups can join our pre-scheduled workdays, or arrange a private weekday volunteer event to help us in the park.

Ecological/Historical Studies
Dumbarton Oaks Park is a vibrant, urban park with remnants of oak and beech forest. It is also a prime example of the effects of stormwater runoff and invasive plants. The Conservancy will work with you to facilitate your research and study ideas.

Plant Inventory
We are looking for volunteers to help identify and inventory existing plants in the Park – a critical step toward developing a sustainable restoration plan.

Website & Social Media
DOPC welcomes volunteers eager to help build our website and social media presence.

DOPC is looking for volunteers with experience in financial planning and grant writing, or who would like to host a fundraising event.
