Group Volunteer Opportunities
Whether you are co-workers looking to get out of the office or a school group looking for service hours, we’d love to welcome you to volunteer at Schlitz Audubon.
Our primary group volunteer opportunity is working outdoors restoring and improving natural habitat. Volunteers work with our Land Management team to maintain our beautiful 185-acre nature preserve.
Tasks vary depending on the conservation priorities at the Center and the time of year. Your group will most likely assist by removing invasive plant species. Other potential projects include planting seedlings, trees, or shrubs or performing trail maintenance.
Learn as You Volunteer
We like to make your time at the Center an educational experience as well! As you conduct your land stewardship activity, our Land Manager would be happy to share more information about our conservation efforts, identify native or invasive plants, and answer any questions you may have about the importance of your support.
When to Volunteer and Other Details
Land Steward Volunteers are at the Center on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, or Saturdays from 9:00am – 12:00pm. You are welcome to join one of these sessions or to book your own private group session from 1:00pm – 4:00pm. Tuesday and Thursday work sessions can also be arranged pending availability.
Outdoor land stewardship requires some bending, squatting, twisting, and lifting. Volunteers are asked to dress for the weather and to wear long pants and sturdy shoes/boots. Clothes and shoes worn are likely to get dirty, and possibly wet.
