HeartLands Conservancy 


Your service matters. There are several ways to volunteer with HeartLands Conservancy. From individual, self-paced commitments to attending large stewardship days, HLC has ways for everyone to get involved.

The overall goal of HeartLands Conservancy’s Volunteer Program is to engage people with nature while restoring our natural areas to a healthy, resilient state. In 2022, the goal of the program is to complete 1,500 volunteer hours in southwestern Illinois.
