Field Trips and Events


The Nature Conservancy's mission is to conserve the lands and waters on which life depends. That work includes getting you and other Delawareans outside and enjoying nature.

Make sure to check back here often to learn about nature hikes, 5K races, clean-up days, tree plantings and other outdoor activities meant to engage and inspire you to connect with and advocate for nature. See you outside!

Volunteer With Us!

A little elbow grease is worth its weight in gold at The Nature Conservancy's Delaware chapter. Throughout the year, we're looking for people to help out with invasive weed control, horseshoe crab surveys, tree planting, research projects, community events and general office assistance.

Please take a look at the current volunteer and event opportunities listed below. Get in touch with us at or 302-654-4707 for more information.
