The Department of Parks and Recreation's mission includes protecting the natural environment within the park system. It is our goal to inventory, protect, manage and enhance natural resources on Prince George's County parklands to provide a healthy and diverse environment for the enjoyment of park patrons and future generations, in addition to a viable habitat for plant life and wildlife.

Volunteer Opportunities

Our mission is greatly supported by public involvement in stewardship efforts. Individuals and groups can enhance stewardship efforts by participating in the volunteer opportunities.
