Help make a positive difference in your community while experiencing the rewarding feeling of helping others. Volunteer in your community today!
People living in the original Blue Zones® areas have reasons why they wake up each morning. Volunteering gives you a chance to lead a more meaningful life by donating your time, expertise and effort to help a worthy cause. Every time you volunteer, you'll be making your community better and contributing to local causes that reinforce your sense of life purpose.
Aside from the emotional benefits, there are significant health benefits associated with giving your time. Studies have noted lower rates of cancer and heart disease as well as reduced healthcare costs among people who volunteer regularly. It seems that volunteers gain as much as they give!
There are ample opportunities across our community to volunteer for causes that you are passionate about. Check out the volunteer needs of some of our Blue Zones Project Approved and participating organizations. For more information and to sign up, please reach out directly to the organizations.

Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge - Many of the projects and events the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge (FWNC&R) offer cannot be completed by staff alone.
