Help TLC by volunteering your time in our offices and/or preserves to enhance local lands for future generations to enjoy! We are looking for motivated volunteers who are ambitious to develop their skills and take ownership of projects.


Become a Friend of Stateline Woods. Join our team of volunteers who remove invasive plants from the preserve.  Minimal training is required. Social-distanced groups can be arranged and masks are required to keep all our team and volunteers safe.

Nest Box Monitors needed at Chandler Mill Nature Preserve. Get a bird’s-eye view and see life as it hatches! Please call 610-347-0347 x 104 or email Lea Gummey for more information. The ability to perform light walking/hiking through potentially muddy terrain on a weekly basis during the spring and mid-summer months is a must.

If you are interested in volunteering or have questions about how you could help TLC with our mission, please reach out via email to Barbara MacDonald, (our Volunteer Coordinator who is also a volunteer).

We could always use your help in the office!

  • Lend your creative talents in areas such as graphic design and writing.

  • Lead an exploration through the trails and teach about geology or local history.

  • Organize a wild foraging expedition.

Let your employees enjoy a day out in the field and give back at the same time. Volunteering with TLC is a great way to engage your company in the community and encourage environmental stewardship. We have many projects geared towards the enhancement of biodiversity and environmental health. TLC asks for donations to cover the cost of the materials for the corporate volunteer day.
