Volunteer BREC May
Art + Dogs = Art Unleashed
Art in the Park is returning, and we need your help to make this event a success. Art Unleashed will include live music, food vendors, art exhibits, arts & crafts, dog costume contests, interactive activities and more! Volunteers are needed to assist with the activities mentioned above. Individuals and groups are encouraged to sign up. For some activities volunteers are required to be ages 21+. To sign up for this opportunity or for more information contact volunteer@brec.org.


Park Scorecard Project
Help us grade our parks! The park scorecard project consists of going out to one or more of BREC parks and giving it a grade based on six specific components. Volunteers complete a digital survey, upload a few photos from the visit, and click submit; it's that simple. The purpose of this project is to get unbiased feedback on our parks.
This is a great opportunity for persons college aged and older or affiliated with an organization or business that are looking to earn service hours. These surveys can be completed at any time at the convenience of the volunteer. We have over 180 parks so there are many to choose from. Parks are assigned by BREC's Volunteer Manager. For more information about this opportunity contact volunteer@brec.org.

Sunset Paddle [Immediate Need]
Sunset Paddle is and Outdoor Adventure program that allows youth and adults with little or abundant watercraft skills to explore paddling into the beautiful south Louisiana sunset. Volunteers are needed to assist with outfitting participants, registration, event set-up and take down, and assisting participants in and out of kayaks.
This program will take place twice a month April - August Except July). Four volunteers are needed for each month. We strongly prefer if the same four volunteers assist on both dates of each month. This is a good opportunity for a group or organization to participate in. For more information and additional dates contact volunteer@brec.org.
