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.
