Volunteers are the core of CFC’s success. There are many areas to volunteer and help. Restoration volunteers work year-round on CFC land to cut brush, restore native plants, and sow and collect native seed. But volunteers also work in many other areas that support CFC’s mission, including education, fundraising, wildlife monitoring, and office activities.
