Volunteer Information
Share This:  

The Forest Preserve District of Will County is a not-for-profit government agency that relies upon the public to support its mission, not only through financial contributions, but through the donation of time as well. The very special members of our community who share their time with us are known as Prairie People Volunteers.

Our Prairie People Volunteers include professionals, students, seniors, organized groups, and families. Their generosity allows us to provide services and programs that would not be possible without their assistance, and the work they perform includes:
  • Restoring natural areas;
  • Teaching children and adults about nature and the environment;
  • Monitoring trails and preserves;
  • Answering visitors' questions;
  • Assisting at our facilities, programs, and special events;
  • And much, much more.
The benefits of being a Prairie People Volunteer are endless. Perhaps the most valuable benefit of volunteering is simply knowing that you are making a positive impact for the environment and your community. Volunteering also provides an opportunity to learn new things and meet new people.

Volunteer opportunities exist for individuals and groups, and projects can be designed for school, corporate, civic, and scout groups.
