Volunteer opportunities on Chester Lake

Shoreline Cleanup
Using a canoe or kayak, picking up trash along the shore is always welcome

Check fishing docks

There are a number of fishing docks and one fishing pier located on the lake that can use periodic checking for needed cleaning and repairs.

Lake and Stream monitoring
It is required that the water quality at Chester Woods is periodically tested.  This is a monitoring program offered through the Minnesota PCA and requires some training. Contact us if you would like more info about this effort.


Drop us a line!

Better yet, see us in person!

Contact Park Manager, Tom Eckdahl to set up an appointment to explore your volunteer opportunities.
