Reconnect with friends and co-workers in a safe and responsible way by volunteering outdoors amongst our 22 acres of woods, trails, streams, and wetlands.

We ask that volunteers bring a mask, snacks, a water bottle, medicine such as an Epipen (if needed), and their own pair of work gloves. We will have a water cooler available; please bring your own drinking vessel.
