Group Volunteering

Volunteer at the Fells with your business, scouts troop, running club, college club, community organization, youth group, or any other community group to support a variety of activities and projects.

Volunteer Projects

Volunteering with your team, business, or group is a great way to give back to nature while connecting with colleagues, friends, and fellow volunteers. For businesses that find themselves in remote working arrangements, it’s a great way to connect with colleagues and get to know your coworkers face to face!

We work with volunteers on a variety of projects across the Fells. Below are a few areas of focus:

  • Invasive plant removal,
  • Trail maintenance,
  • Trash and litter removal,
  • Support events and programs, and
  • … so much more!

Program Feedback

Really enjoyed the day! I look forward to signing up for more of these events. – 2023 Community Volunteer

This is a great team building activity. The folks who work for me on a team of 14 engineers, historically have collaborated on engineering projects to increase their problem solving skills, unfortunately since the pandemic I have hired some new engineers and unfortunately much of their collaboration has been virtual. This face-to-face volunteer activity includes aspects of working together, collaborating on figuring out which tools and which strategy removes stumps most expeditiously and efficiently. – 2023 Corporate Volunteer

Very well run. Our group had a great time and were proud to see all the work we did at the end. – 2023 Corporate Volunteer

I felt that this event was really well organized, [the leaders] are extremely knowledgeable and not afraid to share it with volunteers, their passion for the area is so clear and motivating! Thank you for a wonderful day. – 2023 Corporate Volunteer
