Our Volunteers for Open Space program thrives on the commitment of people who have a passion for preserving and protecting our natural areas.

Volunteers contribute significantly to our ability to protect and preserve our last remaining natural areas and wildlife habitats. Our Volunteers for Open Space program offers individuals, businesses and groups an opportunity to get involved and make a real difference in their communities.

They work side by side with staff to provide an extra dimension of support. Our volunteers can be seen at our preserves, working fundraising events, in the office, in the community garden and educating the public through outreach events or through our education programs.
