Be A Volunteer
With over 5,500 acres of protected land, many sets of eyes, ears and hands are needed to monitor, preserve and maintain our special places in this world. Keeping our operation running smoothly and accurately takes many hours of record keeping and data input. Join us as we work to keep a treasure for generations to come.

Snap Happy People
Calling all snap happy individuals. We are looking for volunteer photographers to photograph events and happenings in our preserves. We can provide a camera if you do not have your own.
Judea Garden Project
Judea Garden, The Giving Garden, grows and distributes organically grown produce to our neighbors in need. Whether working in the Garden itself, helping with distribution or doing supportive work, there’s a place for every volunteer to use their skills or develop new ones.
Help is needed to keep our Preserves and programs running smoothly. Ongoing work includes: data entry, scanning and organizing.
Data for Science
Do you enjoy observing nature? Will you help us collect data for science? Training is on us. Collect info on frogs, birds, plants, insects and more. Conservation science needs you now more than ever. The only requirement is an interest in the natural world.
Trails and Preserves Maintenance
With over 40 miles of trails and many more miles of boundaries, volunteers are needed to help keep it all in tip top shape.
