Volunteer Opportunities

You make it happen: Volunteers are what make Tug Hill Tomorrow Shine

Conserving land, connecting kids and families with the wonders of nature, helping to get the word out about upcoming treks and events, and assisting with trail maintenance. The opportunities are endless and we need your help. Volunteers are vital to the success of Tug Hill Tomorrow Land Trust, and are involved in several aspects of the work we do. If you are interested in volunteering in any type or form to help protect land for wildlife, scenic views, and recreation in the Tug Hill region, please read the descriptions below and contact us!

Trail Work. Are you looking for ways to have fun outside while making a difference? How about helping us maintain Tug Hill’s trails?

We have our very own wildlife sanctuary in the town of Rutland and we could use your help installing benches, pruning back shrubs and trees, or other special projects. Contact us now if you would like to maintain the trails.

Educational Programs. Occasionally, we have educational programs or projects that require more hands than we can provide. Small projects, like helping out one day while we teach a day care group about composting, tagging along as we give classrooms a presentation on birds, or manning a booth at an exhibit would be a great help. If you’d like to donate a couple hours of your time for a specific project contact us now.

 

Getting the word out. If you would rather stay inside, yet play a role in conservation, we have a job for you. We need your assistance with occasional fundraising, stuffing and sealing envelopes, and other small projects in the office. It’s also a great way to get to know our staff! If you’d like to do this, please contact us here.

 

Inspire Others, host a neighborhood gathering. We are looking for people who would like to host an informal breakfast, lunch, cocktails, or picnic where you invite your friends and we update them on projects, programs, and ideas. This would not be a fundraising gathering, it would be a way to build new relationships and find out what people care about. If you would like to do this, contact us now!

 

Lead a Field Trip. We are looking for talented folks of all ages to lead various field trips such as birding or wildflower walks, photography hikes, or kayak trips. The opportunities are endless, and we are open to your ideas! Leaders should be comfortable working with people of all ages and skill levels. Click here if you would like to lead a trip. 

 

Remember: volunteering provides the unique opportunity to attend special events, meet new people, learn new skills, and work with our dedicated staff. If you have any additional ideas, please let us know!

Skills Required: Good organizational skills, computer skills, ability to follow instruction, works independently, outdoor-oriented.
