The GFWC Conservation Community Service Program is designed for members to gain an appreciation for our environment. Members are encouraged to increase awareness of conservation issues, work to preserve, maintain and restore our natural resources, preserve habitats for plants and animals, and participate in endeavors to beautify and sustain the world around us. 


The club participates in National Trail Clean-up Day and Coastal Clean-up Day by volunteering in Henlopen State Park, and works closely with the Friends of Cape Henlopen State Park to assist them in park activities, including volunteering at races and helping to stock the Little Free Libraries set up in camping areas; Collects athletic shoes that are recycled by Nike to make material used for playground surfaces; and is a member of the Arbor Day Foundation and recently donated 10 trees to national forests to help alleviate damage from the 2018 devastating California fires.

Founded in 1905, the GFWC Zwaanendael Women's
Club was organized by public-spirited women 
for the purpose of promoting community
improvements through volunteer service.
