The Friends of the Oswegatchie Hills Nature Preserve has established a team of dedicated volunteers, who are working hard to help us accomplish our goals:
- Responsible management of the Preserve, and
- Acquiring the remaining undeveloped lands of The Oswegatchie Hills.
Let us know how you would like to be involved! You can work at home, or as a part of a group… out in the Preserve, in the community or on your computer…on a short-term project when you have the time…or on a long-term effort, providing leadership, planning or support functions. Most importantly -- there is a place for everyone who shares our interest in preserving The Hills to help us toward our common goal.
Please contact our volunteer coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org to get more information, or to let us know how you would like to help.
Noted below are examples of teams that currently need help, ideas and enthusiasm. As we move forward, we may create new teams or groups, and, at times, there will be positions for volunteers who enjoy working across several teams on a particular issue.
Examples of teams that will welcome your help now are:
Nature Preserve Conservation and Ongoing Use, including:
Preserve Enhancements, such as:
Erosion Control Projects
Grant Writing – Research funding opportunities, and write grant applications as opportunities arise to raise funds for the organization’s projects and programs.
Ecology/Geology/Archeology – Research and identify unique environmental and cultural concerns in Oswegatchie Hills and educate the public about their value.
If you have an idea or a skill you feel we could use, and don’t see what you feel is a “match” above, please email us at email@example.com. We will find a way to productively use your expertise and get you involved!
