How You Can Help During COVID-19

Every year, we receive interest from hundreds of volunteers who want to join us to plant trees, maintain trails, or support our work in any way they can. But the effort to build up nature’s resilience cannot be separated from community resilience. During this crisis, please consider a way you can help your community as a whole. Lend a hand, strengthen the connections we share, and together we can build a world where people and nature thrive.

Please see https://www.vermont.gov/volunteer to learn how you can best support Vermonters affected by COVID-19. 

Here at the The Nature Conservancy in Vermont, volunteers provide inspiration as much as they provide their time. Whether you are interested in getting your boots dirty on our trails or organizing data at our office, the days you spend volunteering help protect and enrich the communities in Vermont that we call home.

Opportunities

Join us for a day in the field:
Our stewardship program manages over 50 natural areas throughout Vermont and your help is instrumental in completing the seasonal “to-do” list. Join us for a volunteer workday to remove invasive plants, improve trails, or mark boundaries. All workdays take place from 9:30am until 2:30pm. View the Calendar of Events to find a date to attend.

Help out with a specific project: 
Occasionally, staff need help with individual projects which may include photography, event tabling, data entry, literature reviews, and many more tasks in between. Be sure to check back here for opportunities as they arise!
