Volunteersthe heart of wells reserve and laudholm trust
Volunteers have fun while extending the impact of our work.
Volunteers were central to the efforts to protect historic Laudholm Farm and create the Wells Reserve. Nowadays, hundreds of residents and summer visitors give a few hours or many days each year to extend the impact of our work.
The Wells Reserve at Laudholm offers a stimulating environment for volunteers of all ages and backgrounds to work and grow. We have opportunities to fit your talents, interests, and schedule.

Boards and Committees
Much of the work of Laudholm Trust and the Wells Reserve is done by boards and committees. These groups make policy, raise funds, coordinate events, get out in the field, and advise, oversee, and review programs. Our advisory committees address education, research, resource management, volunteering, library, and buildings.
Learn new things while getting involved in the research, education, or stewardship programs at the Wells Reserve.
