Find Volunteer Opportunities on Nature Groupie
Interested in volunteering to help take care of a natural area? Check out Nature Groupie, a website managed by the University of New Hampshire that lists numerous volunteer opportunities throughout New England.
SVT is one of more than 200 organizations that post volunteer projects and training sessions on Nature Groupie as a way to reach a wider audience. Using the site, you can search for opportunities by location or by project (such as invasive plant removal, trail work, or wildlife monitoring) and then register for those that interest you. Nature Groupie will forward your information to the sponsoring organization.
“With Nature Groupie, prospective volunteers only need to visit one website to find opportunities,” explained Matt Morris, an SVT AmeriCorps Member. “Volunteers who may have never heard of SVT can find these opportunities and help us take care of the land we protect.”
Jonathan Haarstick, another SVT AmeriCorps Member, added that “We are using this tool to address the need for stewardship volunteers as identified by our partners at the Metrowest Conservation Alliance. Nature Groupie provides a larger pool of volunteers for all organizations.”
SVT is encouraging local partners to adopt the service to provide volunteers with easy access to opportunities. As more and more groups start to use Nature Groupie, it will provide better service both to volunteers and to the organizations that need their help.
We also encourage anyone interested in volunteering at SVT to visit the site, where you'll find listings for several upcoming work days dedicated to invasive plant removal. Check it out today.
