Heal the Land, Grow Community

Volunteer Stewardship

If you’ve never volunteered with LandPaths before, please fill out a Volunteer Interest Form.

Thank you for your interest in lending a hand! Before you join us for a workday, please be sure to read over LandPaths’ updated Covid-19 policies. Let’s all stay safe and healthy!

Our approach to stewardship, the responsible management of resources, starts with the community. This means a lot of volunteers with their hands in the dirt.  When we work together, the task becomes much lighter! 

We don’t use industrial equipment or pesticides to steward the land. This means more work for us and for our volunteers. But it also means more opportunities to grow relationships with nature and each other. 

No prior skills are necessary! We’ll provide all the tools and guidance you need to be part of a productive and fun day on the land. 

  • Stewardship at Preserves: Volunteer activities might include: non-native plant removal, road, trail, and infrastructure maintenance, trail-building, and wildfire fuel reduction.
  • Stewardship at our Community Gardens: At Bayer Farm and Andy’s Unity Park, we invite you to get outside, stretch your legs, and meet new friends while you weed, plant, turn compost, or prepare new garden beds.

Stewardship volunteer opportunities run from one-day drop-ins to ongoing commitments. We also welcome community, corporate, youth, and school groups for organized workdays.

Dave Barry, longtime volunteer at LandPaths

" Nature is medicine for every aspect of your humanity. If you’re on the land with your hands and your feet, you get dirty, educating people, doing stewardship projects, you want to work toward conserving and restoring it, instead of building a shopping center!” "
