The Park’s daily operations are managed by the Park Staff. In addition, the Park is supported by an active and growing volunteer organization. Park volunteers assist with Park tours, provide labor for the ongoing cleanups and preparation of trails and natural areas, and take opportunities to promote the Park in their neighborhoods and various community venues.

Meet the dedicated Park Staff!
