Make a Difference
The Nature Conservancy relies on volunteers to help create a world where people and nature thrive. Join us for a volunteer work day or check out one of the many other ways to get involved with TNC in Rhode Island.
Volunteer Opportunities in Rhode Island
Volunteering can be as easy as taking a walk in the woods! Stop by your favorite TNC preserve once a month and report back on trail conditions. Your feedback helps keep our preserves safe for all. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
We can accommodate groups of up to 8 volunteers for trail work days at our preserves. If your company is interested in a community service project or team-building day in nature, let us know! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Oyster Shell Recycling
Volunteers collect oyster shells from participating restaurants once a week and deliver them to our shell recycling center in West Kingston. Sealed buckets provided. Volunteers must provide their own transportation and be able to lift 30 pounds. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shorebird Program (April – August)
Help our staff keep track of nesting piping plovers and least terns at Goosewing Beach Preserve. No experience necessary, training provided. Contact email@example.com.
