Conserving Long Islands Working Farms and Natural Lands


There are many ways to support the work of the Peconic Land Trust. One way is to join us as a volunteer.

Our Volunteers Are The Best!

Macy's Volunteers at Bridge GardensWe're grateful for all the people who volunteer with us every year! Whether you share your expertise as a Connections program leader, weed and water planting beds at Bridge Gardens, clear trails, help create our successful fundraising events, or attend weekly work days at the Agricultural Center - we thank you!   The Trust relies upon you - we couldn't do what we do without your time and energy!

Interested in learning how you can join our volunteer team? Please contact Outreach Manager Kathy Kennedy at 631.283.3195 or We would love to get you involved!


Volunteer Thank You Event In the Works for November!

We'll soon be planning our annual thank you celebration to honor our volunteers.  If you helped out in 2017, you're invitation for the event will be on its way in late September. We hope you'll join us to enjoy delicious snacks, a glass of local wine, and the company of others who lent a hand this year!

Our 2018 annual "Volunteer Orientation Program," will be being planned for early Spring. Check back for more information, or contact Kathy Kennedy. This orientation is always offered at two locations: on the South Fork at Bridge Gardens in Bridgehampton, and on the North Fork at our North Fork Stewardship Center in Cutchogue. 

Each year our orientation attendees receive information on a variety of volunteer opportunities that suit every interest, and after the presentation concludes, enjoy light refreshments and an opportunity to meet others interested in donating time to the community.  If you're interested in joining us, contact Kathy for more information at 631.283.3195! 

We offer many interesting and exciting ways to contribute in the field as well as in the office! 

Connections Events: Work with Trust staff to greet and register attendees at the events -- workshops, hikes, farm visits, and more -- and stick around to enjoy the program.
Stewardship: Our stewardship needs are diverse -- from planting beach grass, repairing fence lines, cleaning up trails and preserves, to being the Trust's eyes and ears in the field. 
Fundraising/Office support: The Trust is always reaching out to supporters and prospects. Come work with us either in Southampton or Cutchogue and help with mailings, research and other tasks that really make a difference. 
Committees: The Trust has a number of Board-led committees that assist us in our operations, including Outreach, Public Policy, Stewardship, Philanthropy, and more. If you have expertise that you would like to share, we'd love to hear from you. 
Bridge Gardens: Beginning in early spring, and continuing into the fall, the Trust will offer public visits and activities at Bridge Gardens. We  have openings for docents, greeters, and light gardening.

If you are interested in any of these activities -- have other ideas -- or just want to find out more, please contact Kathy Kennedy at 631.283.3195 or  Minors are welcome as volunteers, with parental approval, and our youngest helpers will need to be accompanied by an adult. 

We look forward to working with you to conserve Long Island's Working Farms, Natural Lands and Heritage!
