Become a Volunteer!


Volunteers are always needed!

Our volunteers provide accounting, appraisal, legal, and management services, contribute to the newsletter, lead nature walks, and help with workdays. Our organization can always use volunteer help, whether by an individual, a couple or a whole group! Workdays on our preserves are scheduled throughout the year and are posted on our website and social media pages.

Are you interested in volunteering your time at ParkLands Foundation? Please fill out a volunteer application form and we will email you with available opportunities.
