Volunteer Opportunities

BFHS - volunteer work day at mill house 2Volunteers are often the lifeblood of a non-profit organization. Although the Geneva Lake Conservancy is staffed by full-time professionals, we too rely on persons who can contribute their time and talents to aid our cause. Some volunteer roles are quite exciting, others merely mundane (but no less important). No matter what the contribution, we are proud to designate all volunteers as members of the “Conservancy Corps.”

If you are interested in volunteering with the Conservancy, options to choose from include:


Land Protection Workdays! HERE are our current workdays.
