In addition to heading outdoors and enjoying your preserves, you can also get involved with the District in other ways. Getting involved allows others to connect, and an opportunity to make a difference for our region. Our programs offer an opportunity for groups of all ages and interests to get involved by volunteering or participating in board meetings. Click through the various ways you can get involved below!
