Participate

The Cullinan Park Conservancy relies on the efforts of volunteers to carry forth the mission to protect and enhance Joseph S. and Lucie H. Cullinan Park at Oyster Creek and to make it appealing, fun and safe for wildlife and humans alike.

Throughout the year, several volunteer opportunities are available as the conservancy carries out projects for the betterment of the park. Previous tasks have included trail renovation, bridge restoration, prairie recovery, exotic plant removal, bird surveying (please see this bird checklist for the Park), plant identification, signage installation, and photo contests.

These volunteer opportunities are perfect for members of organizations such as the Boy and Girl Scouts, student governments of local high schools, sports organizations, and more who are seeking opportunities for volunteer or community service hours. They are also well-suited for citizens interested in community participation and development.

The aim of all volunteer projects is to improve the park for future use, protect the habitat and wildlife there, and make it more accessible, educational and fun for the visiting public. Toward that goal, in partnership with the Houston Parks and Recreation Department, Houston Parks Board, and White Oak Studio, the Conservancy has developed a master plan and brochure that outline the potential for the Park.

Please contact the Conservancy with your own suggestions about how we can make Cullinan Park an even better place.
