We Need Your Help

The Friends of the the Green Bay Trail is an entirely volunteer organization. Volunteers perform a variety of work on and off the trail. 

For example, our volunteers:

  • Cut down, dig, or pull out invasive species (such as buckthorn, garlic mustard, or purple loosestrife)
  • Sow wildflower seeds
  • Plant native bushes, trees, grasses, sedges, or wildflowers
  • Water or weed
  • Remove downed trees or limbs
  • Nurture seedlings in a greenhouse
  • Attend Park District or Village meetings
  • Write press releases, emails, or webposts
  • Administer website
  • Organize educational programs and speakers
  • Plan annual Buckthorn Barbeque Event

Join Us Whenever You Can

Most of the time, we are working together in groups of 5-25.  Volunteers learn to identify invasive and native plant species, make an important contribution to our community and to nature, get exercise, and work with other like-minded members.

To volunteer, all you need to do is show up!  Check our calendar to see when we’re on the trail: even an hour of your time is valuable to us.  Prefer other tasks?  E-mail us to let us know what you are interested in doing.
