Monthly Volunteer Service Days

Some projects include planting native species, seed harvesting, invasive species removal, cleanups, and forest surveying.

The events are open to families, scout groups, youth organizations, and anyone interested in nature! Most projects will include moderate to hard physical labor and it’s recommended that participants wear appropriate clothing and shoes. Nahant Marsh will offer gloves, but you may also bring your own. Please feel free to show up and give us a hand!
