Activity Calendar

At a time when our community needs access to nature more than ever, we are grateful that the generosity of volunteers helps us keep our preserves free and open to the community.

 

Volunteers:

Volunteer needs range from helping us on scheduled workdays to helping us manage litter at our entrances or alongside roadsides and trails. We always appreciate assistance with trash cleanup along the Milwaukee River at several of our sites.


If you are interested in a more dedicated role, please see our volunteer steward listings on our NatureNow Volunteer Opportunities page. We are currently seeking Site Stewards, Equipment Stewards, Grounds Stewards, and Amphibian Monitors for the 2021 season.


For questions about these roles or any volunteer-related inquiry including registration for scheduled workdays contact Josh at jschlicht@owlt.org.

Conserving Cedar Gorge Clay Bluffs

 

To make a forever-lasting difference in our community is a rare opportunity. The Cedar Gorge Clay Bluffs acquisition is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to preserve 131 acres of Lake Michigan land to support community well-being, provide wildlife habitats, and protect nature’s health.


Supporting the protection of this land today is a legacy that will last forever!
