Volunteer Opportunities

Dedicated volunteers help us with all aspects of our work – we couldn’t do it without you!  Here at the Trust, we have a variety of volunteer positions to meet all schedules.  Please read the descriptions below to discover which volunteer opportunity is right for you!

Drop-In Volunteer Opportunities

We get it - you want to volunteer but you're not sure how to fit it into your schedule, and you are not sure if you are up to a steady commitment. That is why we have created several drop-in volunteer activities:

  • Trailblazers:

Help with clearing trails, trash pickup, invasive species removal, boardwalk repairs, and more. We host Trailblazer events out on our many preserves one to two times per month.

  • Special Events 

Volunteers are needed to help us provide assistance for a variety of fun events and programs.

 

Weekly and Monthly Activities

For the volunteer who wants to make a more regular commitment, Wildlands Trust needs help in the following positions:

  • Adopt-A-Preserve

Assist Wildlands Trust by helping us to monitor our most visited properties. Once you go through our training program, you will be able to monitor your adopted property on your own schedule and submit property reports electronically.  For this position, we request a commitment of 2 to 3 hours per month.

  • Office Assistant

Join us in the office to help keep on top of things.  Work alongside staff to review property files, do data entry, and help with general filing and mailings.  For this position, we request a commitment of 2 hours per week.

  • Gardener  

We have many beautiful new native plantings on our property, and we could use some assistance keeping our plants watered and weeded on a regular basis.  For this position, we request a commitment of 1-2 hours per week through the late Spring, Summer, and early Fall.

Occasional Volunteer Opportunities

For folks who have special skills and enjoy working with the public, we also have occasional/intermittent volunteer opportunities to assist the Trust:

  • Ambassador

Want to be the public face of the Trust at events such as Farmers’ Markets and local festivals?  We’ll train you to be a Wildlands Trust Ambassador, where you will help educate people about the important work the Trust does and help us promote the benefits of conservation and Wildlands Trust membership. Volunteers are needed year-round but particularly in late spring, early summer, and early fall.

  • Leader/Teacher

We are always looking for new program leaders, so if you have experience with ecology, nature-watching, local history, art, or some other area of expertise that relates to the Trust’s work, we would love to work with you and have you lead programs for us.
