Volunteer Needs

Work Parties  Work parties help the Genesee Land Trust accomplish our important work of keeping preserves pristine and functional. Volunteers help by performing trail work, invasive plant control, trash pick up, and other activities. Work parties generally take place on weekends and occur at various preserves. For more information, contact Kevin Farrell at kfarrell@geneseelandtrust.org.

Special Events Opportunities  From time to time, the Genesee Land Trust holds or participates in special events. We need volunteers to help ensure these events run smoothly. Duties include booth staffing, greeting attendees, distributing literature, accept payments, and other responsibilities.
