Volunteers are essential to our mission of preserving and protecting the natural beauty and ecological integrity of the Berkshires for public benefit and enjoyment. They significantly increase our capacity and deepen our ties to the community.
BNRC offers a variety of volunteer opportunities such as habitat restoration, trail maintenance and construction, independent trail stewardship, supporting BNRC staff at programs, workdays, and special events, office assistance, and community science.
