Volunteer

"I enjoy helping with volunteer work parties every year.  I can really see the difference we're making in the park, and I've met so many nice people who love nature as much as I do."
-- Marathon County Volunteer
 


 
Our Volunteers

We organize a variety of events throughout the year, including educational field trips, in-depth trainings for aquatic invasive species work, and other activities throughout Central Wisconsin. Beyond those, there are countless daily tasks that always need a helping hand.

June 8 and June 17:  Learn how to tell the invasive Eurasian watermilfoil apart from its native look-alikes in the water, and how to effectively remove the whole plant. Moon Lake, northwest of Montello, is in need of assistance keeping this population from spreading to other areas of the lake.
