Friends of SWT: Volunteers

Volunteers are the heart and muscle of the nonprofit world and SWT is no exception!   We would love to hear from you if you are interested in serving any of the capacities listed below. Just contact Nancy at for a volunteer form to fill out so that we can match your interests with the volunteer work needed.  


This fall SWT will be holding clean-up day(s) at Coburn Woods and Philbrick Trails. If you need community service hours or you'd just like to be a friendly neighbor, everyone is welcome!

Friends of Preserves

Do you often visit Parsons, Philbrick or Coburn Preserve?  Please consider helping us by reporting any problems found on the trails,identifying unique plants or animals you may witness on the land, or picking up debris after a storm on the trails. If there is a kiosk at the site checki to make sure there are plenty of brochures in the box and report any vandalism to our printed materials.

Paper Processing Volunteers

If you might enjoy spending a little time chatting as we stuff envelopes and apply stamps on envelopes for SWT mailings, you are Nancy's personal hero!  She will provide coffee and cookies!

Special Knowledge

Do you like to use a GPS, take photographs, set-up wildlife cameras, write news stories, maintain Facebook pages or websites, identify flora or fauna or lead hikes? Do you like to build bird boxes or kiosks?   Let Nancy know at
