No matter what skills and experience you have, The Little Forks Conservancy can always use a helping hand! Whether it's planting native species, removing invasive species, or maintaining a preserve's trails, your help is greatly appreciated. In 2019, volunteers contributed over 900 hours building 450 feet of boardwalk, constructing over 1 mile of trail, planting 150 trees and removing over 6 acres of invasive species. What will you do to help this year?
