Trail Maintenance - Every year groups of people who enjoy working in the woods, pruning, and marking trails, head to some of our properties to “spruce them up”. Tool ownership or experience is not required. Time requirement: ½ day, approximately 4 hours per trail.
Step Falls Volunteer
Be an ambassador at our most popular preserve. Answer visitor questions, help direct parking and monitor the trails all while wearing a very cool t-shirt. We need 2-3 volunteers every weekend Memorial Day through Labor Day. Time commitment: 3-hour shifts.
Every year some of our properties must be checked to assure they are meeting the easement requirements. Monitors walk the property with the landowner, take pictures and complete the monitoring report. Training required. Time commitment: ½ day depending on property.
Boat Launch Monitoring
Our four boat landings - Gilead, Newt's, Moran's and Hastings' need weekly monitoring for damage and trash pick up. Periodic mowing is also needed. Time commitment: 15 minutes for monitoring, 1-1.5 hours for mowing depending on site.
General Property Maintenance
We are always in need of people handy with a paint brush, or skilled with carpentry and garden tools. Time requirement: varies with the task.
Task driven people are needed at our office at Valentine Farm. We need help updating our data base, organizing files and answering the phone. Time requirement: as long as you want.
The Great Sunflower Project
Be part of a project to collect data about pollinators. 200 sunflowers were planted at Valentine Farm Conservation Center in June and we need people to visit the flowers regularly when they are in bloom and record what activity they see. Perfect opportunity for homeschoolers, scouts, gardening groups and other civic organizations. Training required. Time commitment: 10-20 minutes per visit.
