Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Jefferson Memorial Forest & Natural Areas Division!

Jefferson Memorial Forest is the home of the Natural Areas Division which is responsible for managing over 7,000 acres and nearly 60 miles of hiking and equestrian trails spread over six properties! Needless to say, we rely heavily on the support of hundreds of volunteers to meet our mission. We invite you to learn more about how you can help us.

Other Opportunities

Commitment-Free

Not ready to jump into a commitment, want to try something new or need just a few service hours for school? Join us on one of our upcoming project days. Volunteers work on land management and trail support efforts such as invasive plant removal, clean-ups, mulching, trail maintenance and repair, or clipping back overhanging/encroaching vegetation.

Groups

Service projects are a great way for your employees, clubs or groups to experience nature while giving back to the community. Get the satisfaction of a job well done by offering your group’s enthusiasm on a service project. Projects are available for groups of all sizes, and generally last three to four hours. Tools, gloves and other supplies are provided; just bring your desire to help! Please contact us for more information.

Scouts

Scouts have a long history of involvement with Jefferson Memorial Forest. For 25 years, until 1989, the Boy Scouts of America managed the Horine Reservation as a Boy Scout Camp before it was incorporated into Jefferson Memorial Forest. Today, boy and girl scouts help the Forest and other Natural Areas through troop projects such as mulching, gardening and litter patrols, as well as Life Scouts in pursuit of specialized Eagle Scout projects. Please contact us today to discuss potential opportunities for your troop or Eagle project!
