Volunteers are Vital to Schiff

Volunteer Opportunities Schiff Nature PreserveSchiff's original 350 acres was preserved thanks to the hard work and dedication of a core group of volunteers with a vision to protect the natural beauty of the Pleasant Valley area.

Since then, Schiff has been able to thrive and grow based on this tradition of community service.

There are many ways to volunteer at Schiff. Our monthly Volunteer Work Days make everyone a "land steward for a day!" Check our online calendar for dates and times.
