Interested In Volunteering?

Love the outdoors? Share your love of wintry adventures by fitting and introducing snowshoe and cross country skiing to visitors at Asbury Woods.

This opportunity is available for students and adults ages 14 and up. Expect to gain experience in customer service and add to service hour requirements. Prior experience is not needed. Volunteers will help renters to find the proper equipment sizes, help to fit equipment and put away returned equipment after rentals. Dress warmly, as some activities will be outside.
