Help Care for Nature
July 1, 2021 to November 14, 2021
Do you enjoy hiking and getting outdoors? Become a land stewardship volunteer and help keep these natural areas clean and safe! WPC owns and cares for more than 12,000 acres of land free and open to the public for outdoor recreation. Choose from a variety of locations to volunteer from March through November, from the north in Erie County to as far south as Fayette County. It’s fun, hard work, and you’ll learn a lot, too!
Subject to COVID-19 safety precautions. Accordingly, events could be canceled or modified, in which case a message will be sent immediately to the land steward email list.
