CHIP-in! Brochure CoverWe're asking you to chip in by investing your time and talents in your parks and community.

There are a variety of different ways you can CHIP-in! to improve parks and natural areas, invest in environmental protection, and protect our resources while experiencing personal, social and physical rewards.

Through CHIP-in!, which stands for Citizens Helping improve Parks, members of the community can volunteer their time to maintain, restore, and enhance their neighborhood parks and natural areas.

As an individual, or a group, you can help on a one-time project, or on a recurring, long-term project as a park sponsor. No matter what level of commitment you choose - Metro Parks Tacoma will work with each volunteer, or group, to develop the right solution for your area of interest.

The CHIP-in! program manages multiple community sponsorships ranging from individuals, to large neighborhood groups, to local businesses, to larger governmental agencies. However, the need is still there for potential sponsors and volunteers to step forward and CHIP-in!

We're encouraging people to make a difference in their community, to advance their own physical health and wellness, and to expose their children to nature and recreation.
