Nature Ambassadors

a group of Forest Preserves volunteers at a Nature Ambassador training

We know that people who love the Forest Preserves are our greatest champions, and often help connect others to these critical urban natural areas. Turn that passion for your preserves into an official volunteer role by becoming a Nature Ambassador Outreach Volunteer.

Nature Ambassador Outreach Volunteer

Become a Nature Ambassador Outreach Volunteer and represent the Forest Preserves alongside a staff member or knowledgeable volunteers at special events. Volunteers will hand out informational materials, answer basic questions and sign people up for the Forest Way Monthly Newsletter. These events take place in the Forest Preserves and other locations. A one-time training and background check are required.
