Outdoor Volunteering (Work Parties)

Groundswell hosts outdoor volunteering (work parties) at our two nature preserves. With your help, we restore and care for our local natural landscapes for communities to enjoy and wildlife to thrive. We spend our time collecting seeds, managing invasive plant species, and working on other preserve improvement projects.

A typical work party lasts three hours and consists of one to three tasks. Groundswell provides the tools, you bring your gloves. Remember to wear proper attire for the weather and outdoor work; sturdy clothes and boots are best.
