The many ways you can support Starr King Open Space!
The Board is looking to expand our volunteer program and there are a number of unique opportunities to employ your special talents and skills towards a good cause. Getting involved with the Open Space will deepen your appreciation for this neighborhood treasure, and help to protect and preserve it for future generations.
Become a “SKOS Citizen Steward” by participating in the care of the land itself, or by helping the non-profit corporation. Take a look at the list below, and let us know if you can help. And if you have other ideas and want to contribute in a different way, just tell us… we’re *open* to other ideas!
Volunteers may take a charitable contribution tax deduction for expenses they incur in connection with their volunteer services, if the expenses are ones the charity would otherwise have to incur.
Seeking individuals willing to help organize our various fundraising efforts (e.g, publicity/outreach, event coordination, etc.). Prior experience is a plus, but anyone is welcome to join our Fundraising Committee!
Ideally looking for someone who lives very close to the Open Space who can help collect and dispose of green matter, including the placement and retrieval of our green bin at the SE corner of Carolina & 23rd for Wednesday morning pick-up.
Concrete Removal/Road Demolisher
We intend to remove Coral Loop, a stretch of old road which sits atop the Open Space. We seek a contractor that can get the work done quickly and with minimal impact to the rest of the Open Space.
Experienced grant-writers or those interested in developing this skill area and researching relevant grants for the Open Space are encouraged to get in touch.
