Volunteer Overview

Spring and summer workdays are still a great time to take on brush and tree clearing. Join us as we work between a large tallgrass prairie opening and a bur oak savanna to remove brush and tree saplings.

Spend your afternoon volunteering with TNC and help restore this important remnant of the Minnesota River bluffs. You’ll be rewarded with brag-worthy views of the river valley and the great company of fellow conservationists.

Please bring a lunch, plenty of water and work gloves–leather work best. Be sure to wear appropriate (sturdy) footwear and dress in layers, particularly layers that are well-worn and that you wouldn't mind a few extra holes in. Rain, snow or shine, volunteers will be out there!
