Volunteer Position with Iron Hill Park

Park Hikes

For nearly a decade, Friends of Iron Hill Park has sponsored a popular guided Iron Hill Park Hike. In 2018 that fell on the second Saturday of every month, April through November.

As of the last hike of 2018, and after many years of splendid service, our Park Hike leaders (Pat and Lorraine Fett) retired. They’ll be sorely missed.
The Friends are now actively recruiting new hike leadership. This involves mainly planning and conducting hikes in Iron Hill Park, for those scheduled dates (or the day of month could readily be changed). Hikers generally meet at 9:00 a.m., and hikes last about an hour.

For more information, please contact Whit Knopf, at, or 302 738 5529.
The Friends are open to creative suggestions for continuing these successful hikes, and for recruiting new leadership. Even if you aren’t a candidate yourself, we’d like to have any tips or leads you can offer.
We want to be in business again by April 2019.

Volunteer Opportunity!

Broad View Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies is looking for volunteers with horse experience to help implement programming with youth placed in mental health and juvenile detention programs, primarily in Kent/Sussex County at this time.  Due to the nature of the work, a background check is required, but at a discounted rate for volunteers.  The program teaches self-regulation skills via partnering with horses for ground work and riding.  If you have horse experience, are interested in helping some of the neediest students in the state discover the benefit of working with equines, and are willing/able to complete a background check prior to volunteering, please email
