Louisville Nature Center
Assist with plant and trail maintenance in the 41-acre Beargrass Creek State Nature preserve. Work under supervision to remove invasive species and plant native species. No experience necessary, but volunteers must be able to lift up to 25 lbs, hike in all types of weather, and use basic tools such as loppers and shovels. Work days are scheduled ahead, and most occur on weekdays with occasional weekends.
