Be a Weekend


We need your help to conserve Leopold’s Preserve. Volunteers are welcome to go out at their own convenience any day, not just on the weekend, to pick up trash and keep track of trail issues (mainly tree fall and where it occurred). The only thing we ask is that you keep track of these issues and your time on the Weekend Warrior form below.

Thank you for taking care of this unique place!
