Residents invited to volunteer in community projects and programs 

(Waukesha, WI) – Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow is pleased to announce the kick-off of Waukesha County Park System’s new Conservation in the Parks programs beginning in early 2019 and continuing throughout the year. Volunteers are needed to become Citizen Scientists within the many natural areas of the county.

“Volunteering to become a Citizen Scientist is another great way to enjoy Waukesha County Parks while helping guide natural land management and habitat restoration efforts,” said County Executive Paul Farrow.

Citizen Scientists will work with park staff to help monitor wetlands, birds, small mammals, amphibians, reptiles, butterflies, and more! This research will guide land management decisions for restoration and preservation of parkland. No prior experience is required, all training and equipment will be provided.
