When was the last time you used your outdoor voice? Get out of the office and build relationships with your co-workers and with nature. 

Projects focus on habitat maintenance and restoration projectslike planting trees, cutting invasive vines, or tending trailson Natural Lands’ properties.

What to expect: Prepare to work outside for several hours and get dirty. It’s always possible to encounter ticks, poison ivy, and temperature extremes. (Hey… it’s nature! She’s sometimes unpredictable.)

Dates: Spring (April/May) and Fall (September/October) are ideal times for volunteer projects. We plan 8-12 weeks in advance and schedule events on TuesdaysWednesdays, and Thursdays 

Time: Projects generally start at 9:00 am or 1:00 pm, and last about three hours.  

Locations: Binky Lee, Bryn Coed, ChesLen, Stroud, and Willisbrook Preserves (Chester County); Hildacy Preserve (Delaware County)Gwynedd Preserve and Stoneleigh: a natural garden (Montgomery County); and more. 

Who can volunteer: All are welcome, ages 8 and up. (Note, trails are not ADA accessible.)  

Group size: Minimum 15, Maximum 35 people; capacity is determined by tools, parking, staff, and general property impact. 

What to bring: Dress in seasonal layers with long pants and long-sleeved shirtand wear sturdy shoes for walking on uneven ground. Water bottles, a hat, insect repellent (that deters ticks), and sunscreen are all suggested.  

Supplies: Tools are provided by Natural Lands. Bring your own work gloves or borrow ours.  

Cancellation policy: The scheduled workday may be cancelled in case of rain or extreme weather. Sorry, no rain dates. 

Donations to Natural Lands: We make it a practice to reach out to our corporate partners to ask them to consider supporting Natural Lands with a donation or sponsorship. We’ll ask you who best to contact!
