Make a difference: Volunteer!

The Barrington Area Conservation Trust is committed to being a resource for and making a difference in our community.  

We understand that not everyone is interested in working outdoors, so we offer other opportunities to get involved and help.  Do you have a talent or gift you want to share that would complement our organization?  We would love to hear your ideas!

Volunteering with BACT is fun, interactive, and significant!

We ask that all volunteers to submit a liability waiver and photo consent form.

Those under the age of 18 are required to have this form submitted by a parent or guardian prior to the volunteer opportunity.

When filling out our volunteer form, please note as many different opportunities as you are interested in. Our available opportunities tend to change from season to season.
