Giving your time is one of the easiest ways you can help Jack Creek preserve Foundation.  We have a number of ways you can volunteer such as guiding nature walks and hikes, being a camp counselor, or helping with specific group needs at the Outdoor Education Center. Occasionally we need trail maintenance, and we can always use volunteers to help in our office and at special events.

Volunteer projects can also include installing an electric fence at the campground, weed pulling, clearing the trail at Shadow Lake, setting up the archery range, among other projects.  If you are interested in volunteering please email

The Preserve relies on help from our volunteers to manage and implement our programs. Each and every one of you make the Jack Creek Preserve a fantastic place to work, play, learn and explore.
