Volunteers are important members of the Genesee Land Trust team and add the fun to our events and activities. Make new friends and connections with the land. Feel a sense of satisfaction at the difference you can make. Enjoy the exercise and learn something new with your family or friends. All are welcome!

Your help can be meaningful, whether for an hour or two or more frequently as you have time. Together we can get conservation to happen and have a great time!
