Volunteer for Pulling Together

Come work your muscles and your mind with the Pulling Together Volunteer Program. Volunteers restore diverse habitats on high rocky outcrops, forests, wetlands, and wildflower meadows. This hands-on, inclusive, ecological restoration program has been in place since 1999, and is a collaboration with our community to ensure the well-being of present and future generations.

We have teams of active Pulling Together volunteers in more than 45 different parks and natural areas.

Many of the natural areas in parks are at risk due to invasive species: 

  • Scotch Broom
  • Himalayan Blackberry
  • English Ivy
  • Orchard Grass
  • Others

 Our volunteers work together to:

  • Remove invasive species
  • Plant native trees and shrubs
  • Improve wildlife habitat
  • Plan and monitor the progress of ecological restoration work
  • Educate others about parks, invasive species and ecological restoration

Volunteering outdoors with other like-minded community members helps care for your parks and helps you take care of you too. Find out why, our hundreds of volunteers care so much about their parks.
