“Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.” Thich Nhat Hanh
We trust that everyone will find something at Distant Hill that inspires them to look more closely at how humans and nature can work together toward a more sustainable future.
We look forward to your visit!

Distant Hill has no paid staff. All work is done by volunteers. Somehow we have been able to host dozens of workshops and educational events over the past decade, build and maintain over a mile of wheelchair and stroller accessible trails and three miles of hiking trails, develop and keep expanding White Rock Woods nature play area, and so much more, with very little overhead.
But our overhead has been steadily increasing year by year. Liability insurance is quite expensive and keeps going up, as does the cost of the wheelchair accessible portable restroom we have available year round. And contracting with an outside company to update and maintain our website is another expense that we need to soon add to our growing overhead.
And we foresee a need, in the not-too-distant future, to begin the transition to paid staff. We have grown too large to think that we can continue to rely on unpaid volunteers to do all the work necessary to continue offering a quality experience to the visitors to Distant Hill.
This is not to say that we will not be relying on volunteers to help us do what need to be done. Volunteers have been, and will continue to be, an important part of the success of Distant Hill as a important and vital community resource.
That said, if you are interested in volunteering in any capacity at Distant Hill, please Contact Us!
