Volunteer

Help The Land Conservancy for Southern Chester County by volunteering your time in our offices and/or on our preserves. We are looking for motivated volunteers ambitious to develop their skills and take ownership of projects. Learn about what it takes to preserve and enhance local lands for future generations to enjoy. See the list of duties below and please contact us with any questions! High School Students– Community Service hours are available at TLC while you build your skills and professional network.

IMAG0199Corporate volunteering with TLC is a great way to engage your company in the community and encourage good environmental stewardship. Let your employees enjoy a day out in the field and give back at the same time. We have many projects all geared towards the enhancement of biodiversity and environmental health in the community in which we live. TLC asks for donations to cover the cost of the materials for the volunteer day.

Some of our volunteer options include:

  • Thugs to Gems: TLC is looking for a corporate volunteer group to assist in turning our thugs into gems. Non-native invasive plants (thugs) are advantageous plants that are able to outcompete our native flora (gems) in order to create a non-native, invasive plant monoculture in an area. These plant monocultures reduce biodiversity and habitat. TLC needs your help to restore our native habitat by clearing out the invasive thugs and replacing them with native gems.
  • Invasive Plant Management and Restoration: TLC is always looking for volunteers who are interested in helping us with invasive plant management on our properties. Invasive plant control is essential in ensuring biodiversity and quality habitat for wildlife. This can take place throughout the year—the plants we focus on would change depending on the time of year.
