“Volunteers don’t get paid, not because they’re worthless, but because they’re priceless.”
— Sherry Anderson
Nature is calming and inspiring to many people, and it is our collective responsibility to keep it that way for future generations. HCCP works to ensure that our natural world remains as beautiful and healthy as possible. To achieve this goal, we need dedicated individuals like you to step forward and become involved in our organization. If you are concerned about the environment, enjoy hiking, or simply want to give back to your community, we have a place for you in our organization. Serve on our board of directors, maintain and repair trails, and assist with our Adopt-a-Highway events to help us in our important work.
Why Your Involvement Matters:
- Protecting nature: Many different types of plants and animals find refuge in our nature preserve. By volunteering, you help to keep this ecosystem healthy so that future generations can enjoy it.
- Strengthening Community Bonds: People who volunteer feel more connected to their community and to one another. You’ll meet people who share your passion for the outdoors and with whom you can form long-lasting friendships while working toward a common goal.
- Promoting Physical Activity: Trail maintenance and cleanup days are a great way to stay active, get some fresh air, and enjoy the great outdoors. It’s good for your health and the environment.
- Making a Tangible Impact: Our Adopt-a-Highway events have a direct impact on the cleanliness of our community’s roads and, by extension, the environment. The entire community will be aware of and appreciate your efforts.

“Since 2012, I have been a volunteer with Horsetown-Clear Creek Preserve. I like this organization because it is small, and one person can truly make a difference. I have made friends, and I really feel that I have contributed to helping reach the preserve’s goals. As an all-volunteer non-profit, everyone is happy to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. This organization was established in 1991, and I hope it lasts another 30+ years.”— Lisa Ross, HCCP Board of Directors Secretary
