Our dedicated volunteers are vital to our ongoing educational programs, land stewardship, special events, administration, and many other areas.

When you give your time, you are strengthening our ability to preserve historically and ecologically significant land while educating the public about our natural world. We welcome volunteers of all backgrounds and experience levels.

While we are extremely grateful at the outpouring of support, Fontenelle Forest is not able to accept new volunteers at this time. Fontenelle Forest is closed to the public, including volunteers, until further notice. This is in adherence to orders set forth by local government and health agencies.
