Ways to help

Help Maintain Our Walking Trails

One of the biggest ways that volunteers help Autism Sanctuary is through outdoor work like trail maintenance. This type of volunteer work typically involves trimming any stray branches or vines, removing growth that is too close to the trail path, and raking the trail to ensure that it remains smooth. We recommend that volunteers bring their own gloves, bug spray, and plenty of water.

How you help Autism Sanctuary would not be where it is today without the help of our passionate volunteers. These dedicated individuals help us to maintain our trails, remove invasive plant species, grow vegetables in our gardens, and so much more!
About us Autism Sanctuary is dedicated to connecting the local autistic population with nature in an exciting and engaging manner. Located on an 85-acre farm in White Hall, Virginia, our organization has a series of walking trails and outdoor activities under a canopy of trees in the "Enchanted Forest." The property is also equipped with an agricultural hub, complete with vegetable and flower gardens as well as space for our resident cows, chickens, and bees. Our organization hopes to provide a natural oasis where autistic individuals and their families can feel welcomed and comfortably explore all that the outdoors have to offer.
