Get Involved

  • Join fellow nature supporters at one of our three annual volunteer events:

     

    March – Atlantic White Cedar Planting at Nassawango Creek Preserve

    Join us to restore habitat at Nassawango Creek Preserve by planting Atlantic white cedar seedlings. This volunteer opportunity is in partnership with the National Aquarium Conservation Team (ACT!) and the Chesapeake Bay Trust. Nassawango Creek Preserve is located on Maryland's Eastern Shore, approximately 2.5 hours from Washington/Baltimore.

    April – Red Spruce Tree Planting at Cranesville Swamp Preserve

    Red spruce once covered thousands of acres in western Maryland. Join us as we replant several thousand locally-sourced red spruce seedlings to accelerate regeneration and restoration of forest cover. This volunteer opportunity takes place over two days; volunteers are welcome to join for one day or both. Cranesville Swamp Preserve is located in western Maryland approximately 3-4 hours from Washington/Baltimore.

    November – Holiday Card Addressing Event 

    Join fellow Conservancy supporters over a cup of tea or coffee as we work to hand-address nearly 500 holiday card envelopes in preparation for the season! The event is hosted each year in the DC metro area.
