Join an Advisory Panel
Do you want to become more involved in local government? Borough Council receives advice from over 100 community volunteers on various Authorities, Boards and Commissions (ABCs). Whether you care about community planning, local human service programs or equitable adjudication, there may be an opportunity for you to utilize your talents and expertise as a member on one of the Borough's many advisory boards.

ABCs were established to provide recommendations to Council and carry out certain legal obligations. Borough residents are appointed to these volunteer advisory boards in order to expand citizen awareness and involvement in local government and to tap into the community's expertise to aid in the formulation of policies. We welcome and encourage all Borough residents to apply. Although there are a limited number of appointments each year, your application will remain on file until a vacancy occurs and Council may appoint new members.

Flower Planting in Public Beds

Each summer with the help of community volunteers, flowers are planted in public beds throughout the Borough.  We are currently looking for help to plant these flower beds. Please contact Clay Chiles if you would like to volunteer at a planting event, or subscribe to receive email and/or text message notifications when they are sheduled! 

Wetland Education and Community Service
Wetlands serve critical ecological functions such as purifying water and providing habitat for migratory birds and other wildlife. The Borough of State College is home to two wetlands that were constructed in an effort to create a public space that has many environmental benefits. 

You can volunteer to help maintain these public wetlands! Some of the work includes trail maintenance and mulch spreading, invasive species removal and planting of native species. You can also take a short educational program about the construction of these two wetlands and the work the Borough has done to mitigate the negative effects of stormwater runoff to the watershed, as development and impervious surfaces increase. These constructed wetlands mitigate negative impacts of stormwater by allowing sediments to settle and breaking down common pollutants such as car oil and fertilizers.
