There is more to our volunteer program than attending scheduled workdays. Whether it’s researching the internet, attending events, speaking to various audiences on behalf of the Conservancy or completing administrative tasks in the office, there are lots of opportunities to help inside and out. Contact Molly Anderson at email@example.com or (717) 418-9518 for more information about current opportunities.
We are looking for volunteers interested in leading hikes across the state, throughout the year. Suggestions for great places to hike are also greatly appreciated. If you have suggestions, are interested in learning more and/or to sign up to help out this year, please contact Molly Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org or (717) 418-9518.
Volunteers are needed to assist us in monitoring The Nature Conservancy lands throughout the state. Preserve Monitors are asked to visit the preserve on a regular basis (approximately 4-6 visits per year) to assess the condition and needs of the preserve and keep us informed of any issues. If you are interested in learning more and/or signing up to help out this year, please contact Molly Anderson at email@example.com or (717) 418-9518 for more information on the preserve(s) closest to you!

We need outreach volunteers to use Facebook to actively share information about the Conservancy. Facebook is now part of our strategy to attract new audiences, increase our visibility, and increase awareness of conservation and can be a fun way for our volunteers to stay engaged. Start by “liking” us on Facebook! Volunteers are also asked to:
- Make one post per month on their personal Facebook pages relating to The Nature Conservancy or conservation. Or simply “share” our content on your page.
- Post four articles per year about conservation from anywhere. (Try looking on our blog, or other websites, such as the New York Times, the Huffington Post, or something local such as Grid.)
- Post one summary or photo after each volunteer experience with The Nature Conservancy.
