Volunteer for Land Stewardship

Volunteer for Land Stewardship

March 1, 2019 to November 30, 2019

Volunteer Opportunity

Do you enjoy hiking and getting outdoors?  Become a Land Stewardship Volunteer! WPC owns and cares for more than 12,000 acres of land free and open to the public for outdoor recreation.  Land Stewardship volunteers help keep these natural areas clean and safe. You can choose from a variety of locations to volunteer from March through November.  It’s fun, hard work, and you’ll learn a lot, too! For example, you’ll learn from WPC staff about invasive plants that crowd out native species, and how to remove them. You may also work with staff to build and maintain hiking trails. Can we count on you to help protect these special places?

Have you ever seen a WPC garden and wondered how it stays looking colorful, strong and healthy?

Stewards work from spring to fall.
