Wildlife Management is responsible for maintaining wildlife populations within the Park District through habitat management, reintroductions, and management of species of special concern, population control, and general monitoring.
The Park District conducts management programs for a variety of wildlife species of concern, as well as for wildlife whose increasing population in the Metro area is of concern for the species, habitat and the public. Managing for any wildlife species involves providing suitable habitat and maintain a healthy but controlled population.
There are plenty of ways to volunteer in cooperation with the Three Rivers Department of Natural Resources. Put your time to good use by helping to protect and enrich our earth!
From August to October, volunteers are also needed to help collect seeds from the restored prairies managed by Three Rivers Park District. One-time and ongoing volunteers are welcome to help with prairie seed collection.
