volunteer

As a nonprofit organization, we rely heavily on support from our dedicated volunteers. Their combined efforts allow our small organization to make a big impact as we extend our conservation efforts far and wide across the county.

Let us know if you’re interested in getting involved with Saratoga PLAN and joining us as a volunteer. We would be happy to match you with a volunteer position that fits your interests. Volunteer opportunities include working in our office, staffing exhibits, maintaining trails, planning events, and hosting small home gatherings.

Whether you’d like to help out once a season, once a month, or once a week, there is always room for growth in Saratoga PLAN’s family tree.

We hope to hear from you soon!

 

Monday, October 15th –  “Volunteer stewards joined PLAN staff at 9am at the Bog Meadow Preserve parking area on Meadowbrook Road. They spent the next 6+ hours hauling lumber from the parking area to the work site, where they built about 600’ of bog bridges and worked on drainage ditches as well.  This was an awesome accomplishment – mostly in a light rain and in lots of mud. PLAN provided sandwiches and beverages for a lunch.”

“Volunteers are the heart and soul of Saratoga PLAN. They set the course and make things happen! I feel honored and uplifted every day to have the opportunity to enable a talented pool of dedicated souls in their efforts to conserve the landscape of Saratoga County. Having a small staff of 6 providing the support for a large force of over 250 kindred spirits makes PLAN a truly strong, resilient and effective community organization.”
