Volunteer with us

We host four Saturday volunteer events in the spring, summer, and fall. Take a look at our calendar to see upcoming opportunities.

We also offer the Friday Conservation Corps, a weekly drop-in/drop-out volunteer opportunity, in partnership with the BRMC. Join us for any amount of time to work on a series of rotating stewardship projects, available in the Preserve each Friday.

If you are interested in volunteering as part of a club or organization, please contact us.

Wildlife Observation

Leopold's Preserve is part of the Virginia Bird and Wildlife Trail, a network that highlights the best places to see birds and wildlife in the state. We are delighted by the diversity of flora and fauna, and we love seeing your observations on iNaturalist and eBird.

Observations shared to these platforms help researchers, staff, and visitors learn more about the variety and distribution of wildlife in the Preserve. Thanks for your help!
