Volunteer in the Wetlands

Come lend a hand!

Gain hands-on experience in wetland restoration, participate in a team building activity, and volunteer for a shift in the wetland!

The wetland is open Monday - Friday for reservable volunteer slots for any interested students, staff, and faculty. Each volunteer session lasts about 2.5 hours. Volunteer sessions involve hands-on work removing invasive species, planting native species, and other general wetland maintenance. This work is incredibly valuable for the health of our wetland ecosystem and allows the wetland staff to continue avoiding the use of pesticides in its management.

Sign up

Sign up for an available wetland slot with up to 3 people and at least 48 hours in advance by emailing us. You’ll be contacted by our wetland staff to coordinate a meeting spot and any additional information you need.

Available volunteer times are: 

  • 9:15-12:00pm 
  • 1:00-3:00pm 

*Please note: The wetland volunteer appointment can be cancelled due to weather at short notice.

Prepare

Before you plan to volunteer in the wetland, it is advised that you spend a few minutes and watching our Wetland Safety Video, as well as reading the Wetland Access Regulations
