Clark County Public Works welcomes volunteers to photograph parks, trails, open spaces, events and services. Photos provided by volunteers may be used on webpages and in other electronic and print communications, such as brochures and newsletters.
Duties and responsibilities
Volunteers will photograph activities, events and general scenery in Clark County parks and on trails.
Clark County particularly needs photos of weekend volunteer events and photos of people using parks.
Photographers who take images with people’s faces will need to have those people sign release forms, which will be provided by the Volunteer Program Coordinator.
