Saturdays 9am-Noon

Please join us for weekly volunteer sessions at the Hempstead Plains! Tasks include hand weeding gardens and pathways, removal of invasive shrubs and vines with hand tools, and many other seasonal tasks!

Directions can be found on our website

Children under 14 years of age require a parent on site.  All volunteers will sign a liability waiver prior to working.  We have bathrooms on site, and please bring water, snacks, sunscreen, bug protection, and comfortable clothing!



Professors, students, community leaders, benevolent groups and citizens continually share their time, energy, and creativity, and even make new friends. 



There are many opportunities to volunteer with Friends of Hempstead Plains at Nassau Community College, Inc. For example, volunteers participate by ensuring that the unique grassland prairie habitat is preserved and continues to host a variety of species, including the agalinas, with the pink flowers, below.


We welcome groups who wish to participate in a meaningful community service project as well as Boy Scout Eagle Scout Projects, and Girl Scout Gold Award projects.  We even welcome tourists as volunteers to our region.

We also have Special Projects that people can engage in to develop work force skills, a portfolio of personal enrichment, and/or the opportunity to add an extra level of realism to their student assignments.

We even go so far as to have positions on our fundraising, outreach, conservation and education committees, as well as positions on our Board of Directors that open up as our directors launch into new phases and create openings for others.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please e-mail info@friendsofhp.org and include the name, contact info, and availability of the volunteer(s) and age if under 18.

Of course, you can become a member, as well.
