Northwoods Volunteer Connection Projects

Volunteer Opportunity
Laurel Wilson

The Northwoods Volunteer Connection works with passionate volunteers to complete work on public lands that keeps our forests healthy and trails and campsites open for use. We take care of the logistics and provide the tools and equipment needed to complete the job. All you have to do is show up and lend a hand!

Our volunteer projects offer opportunities to gain unique experiences or learn a new skill while exploring and protecting Minnesota's northwoods.

Types of Volunteer Work Needed

Volunteers assist with projects ranging from trail and portage clearing and boardwalk construction to invasive species removal and native species planting. Visit our website to learn more about current volunteer opportunities -!

Appropriate Ages for Volunteer Opportunity

Varies based on the project. Youth under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Special Skills that May be Required or Helpful

Volunteers will be trained on the job. For those individuals participating in projects in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, some camping and canoeing experience is preferred.
