Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Little Traverse Conservancy. With over 250 volunteers helping every year, we are dependent upon their hard work at our 172 Nature Preserves and on our miles and miles of trails.

With our Volunteer Coordinator, Cacia Lesh, on maternity leave, we have put our long-term volunteer recruitment on hold for the summer.  If you are interested in helping with trail building and our other preserve projects, please see our events page and register for any projects that suit your interests.

Check back later in the summer or call the office with specific volunteer questions until Cacia returns. Thank you for your interest in preserving northern Michigan’s wild areas and for helping to further the Conservancy’s mission.
