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? Check out the schedule and pre-register today!
CONIFER PLANTATION MANAGEMENT - Bear Run Nature Reserve, Fayette County
Over the next few years, we’ll be restoring areas of native forest within the planted pine and spruce plantations. Come learn about this unique pilot project, and help with tasks like tree girdling.
In addition to the dates listed above, occasional weekday projects will be scheduled. Workdays are typically held rain or shine. If a workday is cancelled, a message will immediately be sent to the volunteer land steward email list (the website may not be updated for a day or so). To sign up for the email list or for further information, please contact:
