Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are a welcome and essential component to the success of our restoration and management program. Volunteers are needed at the Hempstead Plains during our open hours, on special occasions, and by appointment to help with:

• Cutting woody shrubs
• Removing invasive plants
• Collecting seeds
• Mowing selected areas
• Spreading seeds
• Planting seedlings
• Leading tours
• Presenting educational programs

Professors, students, community leaders, benevolent groups and citizens continually share their time, energy, and creativity, and even make new friends. 


 

There are many opportunities to volunteer with Friends of Hempstead Plains at Nassau Community College, Inc. For example, volunteers participate by ensuring that the unique grassland prairie habitat is preserved and continues to host a variety of species, including the agalinas, with the pink flowers, below.

 

We welcome groups who wish to participate in a meaningful community service project as well as Boy Scout Eagle Scout Projects, and Girl Scout Gold Award projects.  We even welcome tourists as volunteers to our region.

We also have Special Projects that people can engage in to develop work force skills, a portfolio of personal enrichment, and/or the opportunity to add an extra level of realism to their student assignments.

We even go so far as to have positions on our fundraising, outreach, conservation and education committees, as well as positions on our Board of Directors that open up as our directors launch into new phases and create openings for others.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please e-mail info@friendsofhp.org and include the name, contact info, and availability of the volunteer(s) and age if under 18.

Of course, you can become a member, as well.
