Volunteer to Restore Native Habitat

ARMN welcomes volunteers to help us restore native habitat and stamp out invasive non-native plants in natural areas of our local parks.

This work is vitally important to protecting the region’s remaining pockets of biodiversity. In many natural areas, plants that have co-evolved with birds and other local wildlife over thousands of years are being overwhelmed by fast-growing introduced species that strangle trees and eliminate food sources.

As a volunteer, you will:

  • Work outdoors in woodlands, meadows, wetlands and other natural spaces
  • Learn about invasives and native flora and fauna from Master Naturalists leading the activity
  • Help remove non-native invasive plants and replace them with native plants that will support native wildlife
  • Experience the satisfaction of making a lasting difference in the health of our environment

ARMN is seeking volunteers for recurring habitat restoration work at more than a dozen parks in the region. Links below will take you directly to sign-up forms with more information on what to expect, bring, and wear. All events are also posted on the calendar at the bottom of the page. Questions? Email us at volunteer@armn.org.

We love working with groups!

If you’d like to get your team involved in rewarding outdoor activities, please email us at volunteer@armn.org with group size and a preferred timeline and we’ll get right back to you.
