Volunteer service opportunities

Volunteer service opportunities

Volunteer service days are designed for groups to help support the work of The Trustees. The opportunities focus on outdoor, hands-on projects such as mulching or weeding at a public garden, invasive species removal, harvesting or planting at an agricultural farm, and more. The projects vary depending on the property and time of year, but volunteers can certainly expect to get their hands dirty! Volunteers work alongside and learn from Trustees staff who are subject matter experts in areas such as ecology, horticulture, sustainability, and more.
