Make a Difference !!!

Leave a legacy by volunteering to preserve recreation and natural resources at U.S. Army Corps of Engineers lakes.

Volunteers play vital role for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Lavon Lake.  We are located near Wylie, Texas. We are far enough out of the city to provide a truly natural environment but close enough for a visit.  As a volunteer you will be part of a team that works together to conserve our nations recreation resources keeping valuable assets accessible to the public. In many cases, Volunteer Park Hosts, and Park Gate Attendants, are the first contact the public has with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Everyone can Leave a Legacy of Service

Anyone can volunteer at U.S. Army Corps of Engineers facilities: Scout units, civic organizations, local businesses, youth centers, school groups, retirees and more. All of these volunteers assist us in building and maintaining our recreational facilities as well as developing natural areas where animals and plants can thrive.

You can become part of the team and help us meet our missions for the nation. Volunteers duties will vary as per the needs of the lake and park facilities change. Volunteers will work with or without lake staff to improve the facilities and the overall aesthesis of the parks and surrounding government property. Duties include but not limited to tree trimming, water leaks, installing fence (barbed wire and pipe rail), replacing outdated or installing new signs, performing maintenance inspections, replacing/installing BBQ grills.
