Get Involved

Check out our calendar for a full schedule of upcoming events, including guided hikes, naturalist walks, and volunteer opportunities.


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 offer the Friday Conservation Corps, a weekly volunteer opportunity, in partnership with the BRMC. Join us 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.
