Each year several hundred people volunteer with the Knox Parks Foundation. Their volunteer service takes many forms and provides a wide range of necessary assistance.

Training and Orientation
All volunteers are provided with orientation to the Knox mission and to nature and importance of the work they are asked to do. When the work involves skills not already possessed by the volunteers, Knox staff trains them to carry it out through instruction, coaching, and, in the case of larger groups, sometimes group problem-solving activities.
