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 email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re experienced with hand tools, consider adopting a trail as a Preserve Steward. Priority tasks include trail maintenance, removing litter from parking areas, and restocking trail maps. Contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can accommodate corporate work parties of up to 20 volunteers. If your company is interested in a community service project or team-building day in nature, let us know! Contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com.
Shorebird Program (April – August)
Help represent TNC at oyster festivals, music festivals, local breweries and other outreach events across the state. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nature Photographers & Designers
Volunteer photographers and graphic designers make our work shine! Join an amazing group of people who capture the places we protect, so we can share them on social media, in our newsletters, and much more! Contact email@example.com.
