Land Stewards work to keep TWC’s lands healthy, natural, and native, both here at the Headquarters Tract and on our satellite properties.

Mailing Crew collates, sorts, folds, tapes, and labels our monthly Members’ Newsletter and other important mailings.

Office volunteers share the load with the office staff and perform countless variety of daily chores, including answering the phone, stuffing envelopes, and sorting mail.

Promoters are TWC’s goodwill ambassadors, transporting, setting up, and staffing our table at fairs, festivals, and other events.

Special Events volunteers may dress up as a firefly for the Enchanted Forest, experience a night of glamor at Earthly Delights, sling birdseed and eat doughnuts at the Birdseed Sale…

Trail Monitors have the most relaxed volunteer schedule. They show up whenever they want to, take a stroll and say “Hi” to visitors and pick up trash on the way. Some also remove obstacles, pull invasive plants, and help with highway clean-up.
