Monthly Drop-In Stewardship Workdays
At some LandPaths preserves we hold repeating monthly stewardship workdays. LandPaths preserves are managed to retain biodiversity of native species and habitats, maintain ecological functioning, and decrease the risk of species extinctions, while at the same time maintaining the infrastructure needed to welcome and inspire visitors. Our volunteer stewards help protect and maintain these natural, cultural, and infrastructure resources. Stewardship activities are based on seasonality and need. Some common activities include invasive species removal, road, trail, and infrastructure maintenance, native planting, and forestry work. Tools, gloves, water, and a light snack provided. Volunteer stewards should come prepared with long pants, sturdy shoes, layers, additional snacks/picnic lunch, and their own tools and gloves if wanted. Registration helps us determine tasks and number of tools to bring but is not necessary. To register for one of our stewardship workdays, please visit our stewardship/volunteer calendar.
