Volunteer & Other Opportunities at Noble View Outdoor Center!

Noble View Outdoor Center has no paid full time staff. We rely on volunteers to run and maintain the property. Please consider volunteering regularly at Noble View. There’s always work to do, and great people to work with, and fun and a sense of satisfaction to be had! In addition to committing to one or more of the volunteer workdays, your help is always welcome on Trail Work Days.

Attention:  Noble View is in need of a snowmobile and snowmobile sled to maintain hiking and cross-country skiing trails during the winter months.   If you have a used snowmobile in running condition and would like to donate it to Noble View, please contact Nate at 646-248-2828.

Trail work days are held from time to time to clear debris, cut back encroaching vegetation, and generally maintain Noble View's trails. No experience or tools necessary!

Check the News and Events page for scheduled trail work days and contact information.

Invasive Plant Removal

Invasive plants are a problem throughout Massachusetts, crowding out native vegetation and degrading natural habitats by aggressive seeding and spreading. At Noble View, it's an ongoing challenge to keep the woods and meadow areas free of Japanese barberry, autumn olive, Bell's honeysuckle, burning bush, and many others.

If you'd like to help with invasive cleanup--especially if you can mobilize a group of volunteers



Stone Wall Restoration

We need help finishing the stone wall restoration projects along the entry road, and on the north border of the meadows north of the buildings.
