Along with our community tree plantings and public volunteer events, SOUL hosts volunteer groups from schools, businesses and religious organizations throughout the year to install and maintain our urban forest. We work hard to provide our volunteers with meaningful volunteer experiences that help improve New Orleans’ urban forest and green infrastructure.

If you are interested in volunteering with SOUL as a group or organization, please email Catherine Wheeler. Volunteering with us consists of maintaining our urban forest through mulching, watering, surveying, treating, and/or pruning, or maintaining some other aspect of our green infrastructure. Get ready to get dirty and have a lot of fun! You’ll sleep well after volunteering with SOUL.

If you just want to volunteer with us at a planting or other public volunteer event, you can fill out this form and we’ll contact you in advance of an event.
