Friends of Hickory Hill Park

Dedicated to preserving Hickory Hill Park as a natural sanctuary for Iowa City.

Volunteer at Hickory Hill Park

Friends of Hickory Hill Park provides a variety of different volunteering opportunities, from conservation work in the park to preparing mailings and assisting with sales and promotion of the annual FHHP calendar.

Our conservation work in the park regularly involves volunteers from school and university groups, fraternities and sorrorities, churches, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and others. Most volunteer opportunities occur in Spring and Fall. We can tailor projects to the skill and experience level of your group and can provide supervision and training. We aim to make volunteer experiences educational. If you or your group are looking for a project in the park, please contact us a minimum of 30 days in advance of your porposed work date by e-mailing

We are especially in need of volunteers with training to use equipment such as chainsaws andbrush mowers as well as people experienced in controlled burns. We also look for volunteers to assist with programming in areas like bird watching and plant identification.

If you have a special skill or talent that would benefit our organization or the park, please,
