We understand not everyone is interested in working outdoors, so we offer other opportunities to get involved and help.  Do you have a talent or gift you want to share that would complement our organization?  We would love to hear your ideas!

Those interested in conservation and sustainability can learn about the importance of planting native plants and capturing rain water in any type of yard and can help support our community conservation programs.

Restoration work days held throughout the year enable participants to discover the unique nature of our region – from wooded ravines to prairies and wetlands. Corporate, youth, and religious groups looking for outdoor service or team building opportunities enjoy participating in these activities.

Volunteering with BACT is fun, interactive, and significant.  Consider joining us!
