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 environmental education. There are opportunities available for individuals and groups in a variety of settings and we encourage you to explore all the listed positions to find a job that fits best. Learn more »
