Volunteer holiday gift wrapping for Sycamore

Here’s a fun way to volunteer, celebrate the holidays, and raise funds for Sycamore’s local conservation and environmental education work. Sign up for a shift to wrap presents for shoppers at JL Waters, and the proceeds will be donated to Sycamore and Wild Care! PLUS, volunteers get a 10% store discount the day of your shift!

Shifts are four hours (flexible if you can’t do the full shift), with lots of options between Thanksgiving Christmas. Sign up with a friend or come on your own and make new friends while supporting good causes. If you can’t work the exact hours of a shift, email Laine at

Sign up on this Google sheet, where you’ll find more information on specific dates and times. Dates run from Nov 29 through Dec 22, with shifts from 10am-2pm and 3pm-7pm.

Our popular owl t-shirts are available for purchase at JL Waters. Only $20 for a hand-lettered shirt featuring our most popular nature preserves, and all proceeds go to Sycamore.

And if you’re shopping at JL Waters this holiday season, we encourage you to select Sycamore as your nonprofit of choice when you have your gifts wrapped! Thank you!
