If you have an interest in spending time in outdoors, enjoying nature, and making a difference in your community, please contact us to get involved in one of the following activities:

  • Trail Building: Help create and maintain hiking trails for the community to enjoy! Join us on most weekends to clear paths, build boardwalks and stream crossings, and improve access to the Preserve’s 8 miles of hiking trails.

  • Ecological Restoration: Join our Natural Resource Manager to restore Mountain Lakes’ ecological communities. Help control invasive species, plant beneficial trees and wildflowers, and improve wildlife habitat.


Friends of Princeton Open Space relies on the help of volunteers to complete our ambitious goals.  Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, FOPOS has regular volunteer work days as well as scheduled corporate volunteer days.  

Volunteer tasks include, but are not limited to trail clearing and construction, building boardwalks to increase accessibility, removing invasive plant species, and planting native, beneficial plants.
