Volunteer With Us

Ready to roll up your sleeves and make a tangible impact stewarding the land? Join our team of dedicated volunteers and get involved in trail maintenance, habitat restoration, invasive species removal, boardwalk building, and more.

Your time and effort will directly contribute to the preservation and conservation of this precious natural space. As a volunteer, you'll be part of our close-knit community, working side by side with welcoming individuals who share your passion for nature.

We meet every Thursday, rain or shine, from 9:20am to 12:00pm. You can come any Thursday your schedule permits, and choose from a range of tasks that meet your physical abilities – facility maintenance, all the way to getting your hands in the dirt. Coffee and snacks are served as a thank you at the Woods Room afterwards. No prior experience is necessary – just bring your enthusiasm and willingness to lend a hand.
