Share your enthusiasm and appreciation of the environment, increase your own knowledge of the natural world, spend time outside and meet people with similar interests.
Our organization encourages the teamwork of employees and volunteers so that we can effectively educate visitors and restore and conserve the lands within the Preserve. Volunteers contribute their unique talents, skills, and abilities to complete physical and non-physical tasks, enable the paid staff to concentrate on the work for which they were trained, and educate the public about our organization and its cause. Every hour you invest here helps the Preserve provide more opportunities for our community to explore, learn about, and develop an appreciation for the environment.
Due to the large number of volunteer requests we receive, all volunteers must register and schedule their visits in advance. Please visit the Events Calendar and choose the date you wish to visit.
Anyone over the age of 18 is welcome to volunteer; for those under the age of 18, please refer to the age requirements listed below
If your school, scout troop, employer, or church would like to participate in a group volunteer project, please email our Volunteer Coordinator at Outreach@OaklandNaturePreserve.org.
