The New Haven Land Trust depends on the commitment of regular volunteers to assist us in managing our preserves and community gardens. We welcome your help.

We have opportunities for educators to teach garden workshops or lead nature walks. To help, contact:

Nature Preserve Projects:
Invasive Plant Removal:  This activity is seasonal, generally from June through October. You will be cutting woody plants (trees,shrubs or vines) and treating the cut with glyphosate.  Supervision and instruction is provided. You can be trained as a preserve steward to work independently or in groups.

Wood Removal:  This work is ongoing as part of salt marsh restoration at the Long Wharf Nature Preserve.  We can accommodate a group of 10-100 volunteers to help with this project. Supervision will be provided.

Trash Removal:  This task is ongoing to help keep our treasured preserves beautiful. Supervision will be provided.
