Ready to Volunteer.
 

TACKLE YOUR TUESDAYS WITH US!
Do you want to assist with restoration throughout our preserves?

please email for specific location and meet up details as we are always moving around.

Join our restoration ecologists at a community volunteer opportunity and learn more about restoration techniques while making a real difference. Volunteers of all ages are welcome to participate by removing invasive species, cutting, hauling, and/or burning brush.

Restoration days are held from 9:00 a.m. until noon unless otherwise noted. Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear. Lake Forest Open Lands will supply work gloves and any tools needed during the work day. For more information about restoration work opportunities please contact our Volunteer Coordinator.
