Dedicated volunteers help us with all aspects of our work – we couldn’t do it without them!


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 to monitor your preserve on a monthly basis.

Trained AAP volunteers may submit monitoring reports here.


Help with clearing trails, trash pickup, invasive species removal, boardwalk repairs, and more. We host Trailblazer events on our many preserves one to two times per month. You can register for Trailblazer days as they come up on our events page

Program assistants 

We could always use a hand setting up, cleaning up, and making sure the variety of programs that we offer at the Wildlands headquarters and beyond run smoothly. To lend a hand with programs and special events, choose this option on the volunteer application and keep an eye on our events page for programs of interest!


Skilled photographers wanted! Photographers can help us in a variety of ways: you could volunteer to take pictures at our public programs and special events, submit any nature photography of our properties for use online and in publications, or you could volunteer to lead a photography walk or workshop! 

Program leaders

Volunteer program leaders help us offer programs at little to no cost to members in the many communities we serve. We are always looking for new program leaders and ideas, 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 hear from you! 


The Youth Unplugged Initiative offers a variety of programs for students in our service areas. We work with high school Envirothon teams, scout troops, home school communities, and more. If you have experience as an educator, formal or informal, we would love to hear from you!

Seasonal Gardeners

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.
