Volunteer at a Work Session

Please note: There will be NO work session on Saturday 7th April 2018 as we will be holding our annual Wildflower Day Celebration on that date.

If you would like to volunteer on April 7th, and are willing to help at our event, please use the contact us form to let us know your availability.  Volunteers will be required from 8am-10am (for set up), 10am-2pm (helping on booths), 2pm-3:30pm (clean up), or for a combination of these (i.e. 8am-12pm).  There will be no restoration work on April 7th.



Work sessions are held twice a month, on the first Saturday of the month and the third Sunday of the month from 9am - 12pmThere is no need to register for the work session, just show up on the day!

In the past we have varied the hours according to season.  This year (2017) we are going to try sticking to the same hours over winter to avoid the confusion the change of hours causes.  Work session hours will be 9am - 12pm all year.

We welcome volunteers of all ages at Ulistac, however, we do require children under the age of 14 to have an adult remain with them during the work session.

If you would like to organize a work session for a group of 10 or more, or would like a more personal work session, please see our group and corporate volunteers page.

*Gloves and tools are provided*
