Volunteer Overview

Help us protect Ohio's natural areas by joining us at a volunteer event at Big Darby Headwaters Nature Preserve this year. The success of our program relies on the support of volunteers, and with your help we can accomplish so much more than we could alone. 

Invasive Plant Removal

Invasive plants are one of the greatest threats to our conservation mission because they can displace native plants, degrade wildlife habitat and increase erosion and siltation in streams. Volunteers will help remove these plants to ensure native plant communities and wildlife can thrive.

Event Dates

Saturday, October 21, 2023 (10 a.m.-2 p.m.)
Saturday, November 4, 2023 (10 a.m.-2 p.m.)

Volunteers should come prepared with sturdy hiking boots and durable pants for off-trail areas with thorny plants. To RSVP or receive additional event details, email ohvolunteer@tnc.org and include the event date and location in the subject line to reserve your spot in these fun events.
