Are you a group looking to partner with TNC? Would your students, church or community group be interested in a reoccurring service project at one of our preserves? Is your office looking for a great team building work day opportunity? See our Volunteering Information page.
The Nature Conservancy is conducting its annual Sandhills wiregrass seed collection. Wiregrass is an essential part of the longleaf pine forest as the primary fuel for restorative controlled burns. We will be collecting wiregrass seed at the Calloway Forest Preserve on the dates listed below. Please bring a picnic lunch, work gloves, and hand clippers (if you have them) and join us for a beautiful day in the woods!
December 6th (rain day)
