Each year, hundreds of people volunteer thousands of hours in forest preserves throughout Lake County. Our volunteers play a key role in operations and public safety, habitat restoration, cultural preservation and education. There are opportunities available for individuals and groups in a variety of settings—both indoors and out. No prior experience is required, just a willingness to help. Training is provided for all positions.
If you have the time, we encourage you to explore more than one category and multiple positions. We have individuals that volunteer in many capacities. A completed Volunteer Interest Form will set the process in motion. Browse volunteer categories below, or view all volunteer positions »
