Volunteer Opportunities

Assisting at the parks is a rewarding way to raise awareness of the importance of our natural lands. Use your experience to help preserve our future in Calvert County by becoming a Volunteer. To volunteer, contact cypressswamp@co.cal.md.us.

Here are some of the ways you can help:


Work with a naturalist teaching our Nature Discovery programs. Weekend opportunities may include work with small groups in the "loft" or on the trail.


Organize and promote our sites and programs at special events such as PRAD, Children's Day, etc.


Raise money for BCNES. Assist in organizing and running events, including the Nature's ARTcade.


Collect data for ongoing research projects. Interested in bluebird, kestrel, or barn owl nest box projects? How about amphibian and reptile distribution and population studies? We need help with these and various other projects!

Animal Care

Care for live animal collections. Job includes feeding animals, cleaning enclosures, or transporting injured wildlife.


Greet the public for a few hours at one of the sites. You can answer the phone, and assist with sales. Weekdays and weekends available.


Use your special talents: media skills, word processing, ot public speaking experience to help us expand the reach of our programs.

Park Maintenance  

Get down to earth! Help build trails, clear roads and hiking paths, and generally beautify our parks' trails and gardens. Assist with construction and maintenance projects.
