Ready to Volunteer.

Do you want to assist with restoration throughout our preserves?
Join us for an informal restoration work day every Tuesday...
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.

Our in-house Eco-Crew of staff restoration ecologists and interns wll be hard at work this summer. In order for our interns to get the most out of learning and working, we will be taking the summer off of our monthly Saturday restoration days. Instead, make the most of your weekdays with our Tuesday Crew! Email or call 847.234.3880 x20 for meet-up locations. Look for our monthly Eco-Crew to start up again in September!

For large group registration and more information please contact our Volunteer Coordinator.
