Get Your Hands Dirty- Volunteer With Us!

The natural areas are yours to enjoy and explore and you can also get involved with the stewardship of these special places. With more than 35,000 acres and 40 natural areas there's a lot to care for! Projects include trail building and maintenance, weeding, plantings, and more.

Have a group? Volunteer projects are great for team-building, networking, and camaraderie.
Don't have a group? Individuals and families can also participate.
