Caring for the Land
With the permanent conservation of land, comes more responsibility to take care of these special places.
The primary way we take good care of our lands is through work parties. Work parties are great opportunities for members and the general public to help us care for the Land Trust properties – both Conservation Easements and Fee Owned Land.
Work party volunteers help to build and maintain trails, remove invasive species and plant trees – among other activities. We are responsible to care for and maintain our lands forever. Therefore, it’s extremely important we develop a solid and diverse core of volunteers who we can count on for years to come.
Volunteer Site Stewards
Key members of our Land Trust stewardship team are the Land Trust Site Stewards. Site stewards are volunteers who adopt one of the Land Trust’s properties and assist with monitoring and other stewardship activities on the property. They develop a special connection with the property while acting as eyes and ears for the Land Trust and assisting the conservation team with land protection. If you’d like more information about becoming a site steward, contact our Land Steward, Jessica Larson.
We would love to have you help us care for the land! Check out our Volunteer Opportunities and join us at our next work party.
