Natural Resources Volunteers get to enjoy nature while working to restore natural diversity to DuPage County forest preserves. The District relies on volunteers to continue Managing Natural Resources throughout DuPage County. During workdays, volunteers collect and redistribute seeds or remove invasive species to re-establish native prairies and woodlands. Volunteers also monitor bird, amphibian, reptile, and insect populations and care for seedlings in the District's native-plant nursery. Help improve the habitats of the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County by joining this dedicated group of volunteers.
The purpose of Volunteer Services Program at the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County is to engage volunteers who are willing to donate their time, talents and resources to support the programs and staff in carrying out the mission, purpose, and guiding principles of the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County and the volunteer programs.
