GROUP OR CORPORATE IMPACT DAYS

Corporate and groups of volunteers fill an essential role in the health and upkeep of Moncus Park! Horticultural and maintenance projects promote team-building while providing an important service to the Park. Corporate or group “Impact Days” are based on the needs of the park at the time of the scheduled visit and are typically scheduled for 1-2 hours.

Put your green thumb to good use in our diverse ecosystems! Work alongside our certified arborist and conservation team to help maintain the park gardens, native plant-beds, and grounds. Gain some insider tips on gardening in Louisiana’s natural climate. Help us prepare for some of our biggest events in the Park! Complete the interest form below and a Moncus Park staff member will be in touch soon with more information!

CONSERVATION CLUB

Interested in being a representative of Moncus Park?

If you find yourself at the Park more than anywhere else and have a passion for nature, consider donating your time in our Conservation Club!

The Conservation Club provides an outlet for environmental enthusiasts to lend an extra set of hands in protecting Moncus Park’s natural assets. Club members will learn from and work alongside key team members and community experts, building lasting relationships and increasing knowledge about park ecosystems and operations. By hosting monthly volunteer sessions, we aim to increase knowledge and passion for our environment at Moncus Park and throughout the Acadiana Region!

The Conservation Club is held every third Saturday of the month. See the schedule for 2024 projects and times.
