Want to be in nature and help make a difference in your community? Volunteer with Pocono Heritage Land Trust! Enjoy the outdoors, care for nature by keeping our preserves free from harm, improving access for the public to visit and enjoy the benefits of being in nature. Benefits of getting outdoors include increases in mental and physical wellbeing, boosts creativity and also helps with ADHD. You can work at an event or service project, or make a larger commitment through our volunteer program.
Be a Conservation Volunteer:
Our volunteer program provides detailed training and opportunities for volunteers who commit to serving on a monthly basis. Volunteers typically visit PHLT nature preserves on a monthly basis to monitor any litter / dumping problems, invasive plants, notify us of downed trees, etc. and will meet new people & wildlife in the woods and will learn valuable conservation tips and best land management practices, and become important Pocono Heritage Land Trust ambassadors!
