As a Duke Forest volunteer, you are directly involved in improving the Forest and helping us to carry out our teaching and research mission. Our active volunteer program is based around some engaging and rewarding long-term volunteer programs that directly assist our staff and the Forest. While we have limited capacity to host one-off volunteer events on the Forest and while we usually cannot accommodate requests from outside groups wanting to volunteer, you are still welcome to inquire.
To be considered for volunteering, please Subscribe to our e-LOG newsletter and select “Volunteering”. You will be included in our volunteer specific emails in addition to our general emails. All general volunteer events are on an ad hoc basis, and you can find out about them by subscribing to our newsletter.
