Lend a Hand

We run on volunteer power!

The Great Bay Reserve relies on people just like you to help keep our Reserve healthy and beautiful for everyone to enjoy. We’ll provide guidance, tools, and camaraderie.
  • Adopt a Spot: Help with the grounds maintenance or become a “deckhand” for one of our play boats. Typically, you’ll spend about one hour a week working on your spot, with more time twice a year for seasonal tasks, at times convenient for you. See the flyer for more info.
  • Outdoor Workdays: Too busy for a steady commitment? From early spring to when the first flakes fall, there are many opportunities to help out, including planting, weeding, pruning, spring cleanups, and one-time “handy projects” we need help with. We can schedule a day of service for your corporate team, service group, or family.
  • Help Out at Great Bay’s Community Wildlife Garden: Looking to get outside and lend a hand, but need something a bit more flexible?  We are looking for folks to join the weeding crew for Great Bay’s Community Wildlife Garden in Stratham…this crew meets each Friday morning at 9 to tackle weeds.  You can help out every week, or once in while.
  • Stewardship Outreach-Get the Word Out: We are looking for volunteers who love the outdoors and public outreach to help us spread the word about two great Stewardship tpoics-Trails for People and Wildlife (TPW), and the Wildlife Garden.  All training is provided and volunteers will work with the Stewardship Coordinator to sign up to staff TPW events or give tours of the Wildlife Garden.  For more info about garden tours email Melissa and for info about Trails for People and Wildlife visit the website.
  • Workshop Hospitality: We often need help during our community workshops. Tasks include brewing coffee, doing dishes, tidying up, and taking pictures.
