The Whatcom Parks and Recreation Foundation provides volunteer opportunities year-round. Any individual or group can get involved. WPRF volunteers can help with trail and park clean ups, fundraising events, park surveys, and more! Volunteers are also welcome to share their diverse talents as an event photographer, musician or any other talent you have that is fit to share.
