Support Volunteer

Volunteer with Cardinal

Give the gift of time to Cardinal through volunteering. There are many ways that a volunteer can support our mission.

Land Stewardship Volunteers  Do you love being outdoors? Lending a hand at preservation projects? Or do you want to learn more about how to make a difference in preserving the land in the region? Join us at Cardinal’s next volunteer work day. These volunteer events take place at Cardinal’s preserves in the region. Tasks include trail maintenance, invasive species management, tree planting, and lots of other projects.

Easement Monitoring Volunteers  Cardinal Land Conservancy is responsible for monitoring the properties we hold Conservation Easements for. This means that Cardinal must visit the property once a year and ensure that the terms of the Conservation Easement are being upheld by the landowner. To assist Cardinal’s Land Manager with easement monitoring, please contact our office.  

Education Volunteers Are you an expert in the preservation, conservation, nature space? Would you like to share your knowledge with Cardinal members? Cardinal would love to have you volunteer your time and share your expertise. Whether it is leading educational hikes or giving a presentation, we welcome the opportunity to provide educational programming for our members and the community.
