Stewardship Volunteers – Do you want to feel a real connection to the outdoors? Enjoy hands on volunteering? Then this is the project for you! We need your help with a variety of meaningful community stewardship programs that are suitable for groups such as schools or civic organizations, businesses and families.

  2. Become part of the New Jersey Invasive Species Strike Team by searching for and removing newly emerging invasive species, and
  3. Assist with our forest health monitoring system that helps guide our Deer Management Program.


Bring us your talent and enthusiasm – consider volunteering on one of two committees below.

Marketing and Outreach – FoHVOS participates in several community events throughout the year - be an "open space" ambassador. We are also looking for creative ways to promote the importance of open space conservation through special projects, publications and our website. You must be able to meet 4-6 times per year.
