Take a hands-on role in helping to preserve our beautiful land on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. A group also meets one Saturday a month to assist rangers with larger projects such as clearing garlic mustard, rerouting trails and planting trees.
Fontenelle Forest’s Teen Naturalist Trainee (TNT) group is opening the admission process for any teens entering high school this fall. If you know a teen who loves nature, hiking, and doing service this is a fun opportunity to join like-minded teens and get active and get outside. We meet the 3rd Saturday of each month as well as helping out with many events at the Forest. Click here for an application. Check our event calendar for meeting information.
Assist our staff in maintaining the interior and exterior of our buildings by helping with painting, re-roofing, deck maintenance and construction.
Be part of of the action! Whether it is the grand opening of an exhibit, Trick or Treat in the Forest or a Members-only program, our public educational events require many hands to be successful! Special events are generally held on weekends.
Peel apples, assemble pies or decorate the finished product with this fun opportunity! This dedicated group of volunteers meets about six Monday mornings a year. Baking experience is not required.
