Volunteer Sign Up

There are so many ways to get involved with bringing Nature At The Confluence to life!

We need volunteers to help support and sustain this initiative. From planting gardens, pulling weeds, planning trails, or helping with activities for all ages – there’s so many opportunities.

We understand that no two volunteers are alike. Some can help a little, some a lot. Some have weekends available, some weekdays. Some want to do the “grunt” work on the land and others are more comfortable planning and organizing. Below are the current volunteer opportunities
