Share your love of nature with others

Help care for beautiful preserved properties, build and maintain trails to ensure our natural spaces remain accessible for everyone to explore, or share your love of nature with others through education programs. A variety of opportunities are available depending on your skills, interests, and availability. We’ll provide all the information and tools you need to feel confident. Contact Amanda Weisenberger at 256-534-5263 or to receive notifications of upcoming volunteer needs.

Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities



With miles of trails, we can always use some extra hands! Volunteers help build or maintain trails under the direction of Land Trust staff. Check our event calendar for upcoming work days.

Individuals or organizations can adopt-a-trail through our Trail Care Partners program – perfect for businesses or civic, church, and social groups. The commitment includes monitoring the trail at least quarterly and conducting light maintenance as needed. Contact to let us know if you’re interested.

Events & Administration

Lend a hand at an upcoming fundraising event or help with projects around the office.


We can always use professional photography from our work days, hikes, events, and trails.

Help as you Hike!

  • Use iNaturalist to help identify and document flora and fauna. No plant or animal identification knowledge required and the app works with any smartphone. By documenting what you find along your hike, you can help us inventory the incredibly varied species residing on our properties.
  • All hikers should leave no trace but you can go the extra mile by bringing along a garbage bag and gloves to pick up trash you spot along the trails.
  • If you see something that needs our attention, please let us know so we can correct it quickly!

Contact Amanda Weisenberger, Volunteer Coordinator, or 256-534-5263 to become a volunteer.
