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.

We are suspending Eco-Crew until the fall. Now that the weather is warm we encourage you to walk our preserves and do some restoration in your own backyards! We look forward to starting up our Eco-Crew volunteer days again in the fall. Watch this webpage for further details.

We will be suspending our Eco-Crew work days until spring. Hope to see you down the trail!

Join our restoration ecologists at a community volunteer opportunity and learn more about restoration techniques while making a real difference. Volunteers of all ages (children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult) 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 at
