Join us for Volunteer 101! 

This informational session will provide you with a broad overview of Fontenelle Forest as an organization and highlight the various opportunities the Forest has for you to participate as a volunteer. 

You’ll learn about: 

  • Fontenelle Forest’s organizational history 

  • Our education, land stewardship and raptor programs 

  • How it all fits together to fulfill our mission of conservation, education and recreation 

Fontenelle Forest owns and maintains over 2,100 acres of land and 24 miles of trails. Each year we offer educational programming for thousands of people of all ages, from early childhood to seniors, both on-site and on-the-go. 

As a small, non-profit organization, volunteers are critical to the work we do. We rely on the help and support of volunteers to help us fulfill our mission!  

Become a valued member of the Fontenelle Forest team! Current volunteers who have not yet attended Volunteer 101 are also welcome. 

Registration is required. Event is free for members and non-members.

Trekking in the Forest

Join our Naturalist Educators each Sunday on a guided hike along the beautiful trails of Fontenelle Forest.

All hikes will be from 2:00-4:00 pm and last 2 hours, traversing easy to moderate terrain. Social distancing guidelines will be followed. Masks will be required whenever hikers cannot maintain a 6-foot distance from one another.

Each Sunday we will be meeting at a different trail head so that participants are able to experience some of the lesser-known trails.

Maximum of 15 people per event. Pre-registration is required.

This event is free to members and $15 for non-members.  Members must sign in to receive discount.
