Kitty Todd Nature Preserve/Oak Openings Region

Thank you for your interest in helping to protect and preserve nature on our spectacular preserves all over Ohio. Our volunteer projects are centered on nature preserve management and ecological restoration activities - both of which are critical components of TNC’s work and mission.

We need your help and we want you to be part of our conservation community in your area. Participating in projects will give you the opportunity to make a direct positive impact on the environment and meet people who have similar environmental passions.

Native Garden Maintenance and Upkeep - The Kitty Todd Preserve has an excellent demonstration garden located at the Office that shows visitors what kinds of natural communities the preserve supports on the landscape. We need help to keep this looking good during the growing season. If you have a green thumb and a desire to help please contact us.

Native Prairie Seed Collectors - Collecting seeds is a fun way to have a huge impact on the local natural areas that are being restored. In severely degraded natural areas it is necessary to restart the natural ecological communities that once existed there. Seed collection happens throughout the year, so call the preserve and ask how you and/or a group of your friends can help out!

Biological Monitors - Knowing how the natural communities are responding to our work is important to the success of our projects. There are various monitoring projects going on throughout the growing season (May-October) around the preserve and Oak Openings Region. Come out and look for the things you love to see any ways! Current opportunities include butterfly, reptile/amphibian, vegetation monitoring but could include a wide variety of other interests as well.

Land Management Volunteers - During the growing seasons TNC can use your help to fight off invasive species that are highly detrimental to the success of our natural communities. Using various methods we will prevent many of these invasive species from taking over the spectacular natural areas that make up the Oak Openings.

To sign up for a specific project or workday, contact ohvolunteer@tnc.org or 614-717-2770 x1144 and indicate the project location(s) and date. Once you sign up for a project you will be connected with regional staff and/or leadership volunteers who will provide you with all necessary details to the project date.
