Committed volunteers and community partners have a rich history of joining with Elachee to help make the visitor experience once to remember.

Elachee enlists the help of area businesses and volunteer groups on select conservation projects for future sustainability and environmental stewardship within Chicopee Woods Nature Preserve.

Chicopee Woods invasive weed management is one example. The Elachee organization works to control exotic invasive plants, to restore and protect important wildlife habitats, enhance biodiversity, safeguard high priority (rare) plants and educate the public about the adverse impact of these unwanted plants.
