Making 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 Waco Lake. We are located next to Waco, TX. 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. We need volunteers to water, mulch and prune trees in various Park areas remove of graffiti from recreational facilities, assist with Lake Shore Clean-Up, and repaint restrooms and many other construction maintenance tasks at Waco Lake.
Volunteers in past have planted wetland plants and trees to reduce shoreline erosion and provide shade in recreation areas.
