Join other volunteers in sprucing up PVAS's nature preserves.  Whether your special place is in the woods at Yankauer, in the meadow at Cool Spring, or at Back Creek of Stauffer's Marsh, we can use your help!

Volunteers will be doing an array of work projects including removing invasive plants, painting outdoor buildings, clearing and maintaining trails, spreading mulch, planting trees, weeding butterfly gardens, and more. If you have energy and interest we have a task for you!

Lunch and a t-shirt are provided for volunteers. Please bring a refillable water bottle as we have extra water for refills during the day.  Gloves and tools are available, but you are welcome to bring your own. (Just please make sure they are marked with your name.)

All volunteers are required to sign a United Way waiver which will be sent to you by email.
