Inside or out, Steep Rock Association benefits from work performed by our amazing volunteers. With over 5,200 acres of protected land, many sets of eyes, ears and hands are needed to monitor, preserve and maintain our special places in this world. Keeping our operation running smoothly and accurately takes many hours of record keeping and data input.
We wouldn’t be where we are today without the work of volunteers. Join us as we work to keep Steep Rock Association a treasure for generations to come.
There are many opportunities for you to help (see below). If you have other ideas or ways to volunteer, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Denise Arturi. Seasonal opportunities are directly below or scroll down for ongoing opportunities – we need your help throughout the seasons.
