Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities

Leaders will supervise small groups in invasive plant removal and assist our Volunteer Coordinator at large-scale events. We will offer a short training in the history of the Emerald Necklace, invasive plant identification and removal techniques, and group management. Volunteer Leaders will be required to attend three events as supervisors of small groups of volunteers.
Info for Volunteers
What to bring: Long pants, closed toe shoes, hat, all weather clothing, snack, sunscreen and a water bottle.
What is provided: All necessary tools, gloves and instruction.
What to expect: Emerald Necklace Conservancy volunteer work days are typically 3 hours long and involve some type of ecological restoration work such as planting trees or wildflowers, controlling erosion, building trails, or managing invasive species. We’ll teach you everything you need to know about safety and technique, provide you with tools and materials, and help you make a difference in our amazing parks. Expect to have fun, meet people who love the outdoors, and get dirty!
What about the weather: Projects are weather dependent.
