Help us de-install the current bird boxes on the preserve, mend them and put them back up so the blue birds can again make their home there. This is a great project for families to partake in but we ask that all children are accompanied by a parent or guardian.6/6Over

We're in the middle of re-doing all of the maps and website for Oak Cliff Nature Preserve and need photos of all of the special places on the preserve so we can tag them on a Google map to the spot where they are. Help us out by walking through the preserve as a team and taking photos of anything you think is exciting and worthy of being on a map. Then, note the GPS location of that photo, and later we will pair up those photos with our trail map! Your handiwork will benefit thousands of future trail users.

We recommend that only those with solid photography skills sign up for this one!

We will provide GPS units for this project!

We are excited to bring together groups of volunteers to get outside and have fun while helping the land.
We need your help to take photos of the participants hard at work so we can use the photos for future grant applications, promotional materials and social media.

This volunteer will ideally be someone with an interest in nature photography and event photography since there will be a mix of taking photos of groups and taking photos of the nature preserve itself.

Help out by putting your photo skills to work for the environment!

We will heavily promote your photo business on our Facebook page and social media and thanks and each time we use a photo you took, you and your website will be credited.

As an urban preserve, OCNP is sometimes cluttered up with trash that blows into it or is dumped there by less than respectful visitors! Help the preserve out and join us in picking up litter around the preserve, for the benefit of the plants and animals who make this preserve their home. We will provide work gloves and garbage bags!12/15Over

At our last work day we removed tons of invasive privet plants and then mulched them, now we have a nice pile of mulch that we want to spread out to benefit the preserve! Help out the preserve! If you have your own shovel, please bring it with you, it not, we will have some here.2/5Over

There are a few types of invasive plants who have overgrown parts of Oak Cliff Nature Preserve. They choke out the native plant types and change the habitat so native animals have less food there. Help out the ecological balance of the preserve by pulling up privet with Weed Wrenches and cutting the larger bushes with hand saws!4/15Over
