Connecting Volunteers to the Heart of the Continent
Make a difference by volunteering on the 5.5 million acres of public lands in the Heart of the Continent region! Volunteers help preserve public lands and waters and their flora and fauna, maintain wilderness character, maintain recreational sites, implement research & monitoring, and preserve historic & cultural features. This new web connection posts volunteer opportunities on both sides of the Minnesota/Ontario border, from Duluth to Thunder Bay, from the Iron Range to Quetico Provincial Park, and points in between.
Minnesota/Ontario border offer some of the best outdoor recreation in the country and fascinating historical and cultural places. Sometimes nature needs our help to restore ecosystem functions so that they stay healthy long into the future. Likewise, recreational, historical and cultural features deteriorate over time, and need maintenance so that we and future generations may continue to understand and enjoy them. Why not give back to the places that you, your friends and your family love?
Types of Volunteer Work Needed
