For your first shift, please arrive at 7:45 for a quick orientation. Subsequent times please arrive for 8am as we leave the building promptly and may not circle back to collect latecomers.
Currently, many of our volunteer activities involves actively participating in habitat restoration as we move towards our goal of restoring the area’s native longleaf pine and sand hill habitats, as well as general preserve maintenance. Volunteer duties may include but are not limited to removing invasive plants on many of our trails, trimming plants along our boardwalk, leaf-blowing the parking lot, boardwalk, and pavilion, and various other tasks including but not limited to clerical and office work.
General info: Because these are outdoor activities, it’s important to wear weather appropriate clothing, closed-toed shoes, and sunscreen. Bug spray is also recommended. Please bring a reusable water bottle and gardening/work gloves if you have them!
We have limited spots available for volunteers. If registration is not available, we have reached our limit for the day. We have a waitlist available, you must register for the waitlist for each shift you'd like to be waitlisted on. Waitlists do not carry over.
