Corporate & Group Volunteering
With more than 50 wildlife sanctuaries located around the state, there are plenty of community service opportunities for groups interested in volunteering with Mass Audubon. Our wildlife sanctuaries welcome the assistance of over 120 volunteer groups a year, including:
- Small businesses and large corporations
- Schools (colleges, high schools, and elementary schools)
- Alumni groups
- Scout troops
- Churches and synagogues
- Community and civic organizations
Project Types & Duration
Service projects range from property maintenance to farm chores, ecological management to small construction. Volunteer groups have:
- Planted butterfly gardens
- Repaired boardwalks
- Installed fencing
- Helped control invasive plants
- Created nature play areas
- Maintained trails
- Built turtle gardens
- Made decorations for special events
Most projects are designed for 2 hours to a half-day, but multi-day projects can also be arranged.
Generally, we provide the tools, but a contribution to cover the cost of materials (e.g., mulch, shrubs, lumber) is always appreciated, although it is not required.
Scheduling & Group Details
Depending on the size of your group (from 5 to 50, or more), the ages of your volunteers, and your schedule, we can help you find a suitable project and a convenient location. The busiest months are May through September, so we encourage you to schedule several weeks in advance.
