Volunteer

Join us in protecting the places that make Tennessee unique.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are essential to The Land Trust for Tennessee’s mission. Our volunteers play a significant role in our work and help our team with a wide range of activities, from getting outdoors on protected land across the state to hosting student groups at The Land Trust’s Glen Leven Farm in Nashville.  

Glen Leven Farm Stewardship (Nashville)

Join us on the second Thursday of each month for Stewardship Days at The Land Trust’s Glen Leven Farm. Volunteers assist with seasonal projects such as maintaining the 1.4-mile Nature Trail, caring for the Education Garden, and removing invasive plant species throughout the 64-acre property.

Land Monitoring (Statewide)

Each year from January through March, The Land Trust monitors over 90,000 acres of protected land throughout the state. Volunteers visit properties, meet with landowners, and share their observations with our stewardship team. Note: The Land Trust is utilizing aerial imagery to monitor protected properties in 2021. We hope to resume in-person visits in 2022.

Field Studies (Nashville)

The Land Trust welcomes Middle Tennessee students to Glen Leven Farm on weekdays during the spring and fall. Volunteers assist with leading activity stations during Field Study visits for K-5 students, helping to educate and inspire the next generation of conservationists.

Events & Outreach (Statewide)

Throughout the year, The Land Trust hosts a variety of community and fundraising events at Glen Leven Farm in Nashville and across the state. Volunteers help with coordination and administrative tasks such as assembling mailings, preparing materials, decorating tables, and setting up and cleaning up for events and outreach programs.

Corporate and group volunteer opportunities are also available for stewardship projects and primarily take place at The Land Trust’s Glen Leven Farm in Nashville.
