Volunteers Needed

For the Missoula Parks & Recreation Board

Be a part of the board that helps make Missoula such a beautiful place to live. Mayor John Engen is seeking an applicant for one volunteer to fill a vacated term on the Missoula Parks & Recreation Board.

The Parks & Recreation Board makes all decisions necessary to protect and promote parks as well as open spaces, greenways and trails in our area. The board also protects and promotes the growth of trees and plants in parks, streets, avenues, alleys, boulevards, and public places for the protection of all birds inhabiting, frequenting, or nesting in those places.

For more information please visit the Parks and Recreation Board page.


Appointees must be at least 21 years old, been a resident of the state for at least three years and been a resident of the City of Missoula for at least two years preceding the appointment to office. Their position is considered vacant if the individual ceases to be a resident of the City of Missoula.

The term of office will begin immediately and expire on April 30, 2023.  At that time, the new applicant will have an opportunity to apply for a new three year term. The board meets the second Tuesday of every month at 12:00 PM.
