Work Days in the Pine Barrens

Looking to get outside and volunteer in the Pine Barrens? Join our stewardship coordinator, Jason Howell, at one of the following events.

With the help of volunteers, we can help restore the damage, protect the forests against continued abuse, and promote responsible use of the lands. These work days are critical ways to protect against water degradation and habitat loss.
