Interested in Becoming One of TILT's New Preserve Stewardship Volunteers?

Stewardship volunteers will have a unique opportunity to participate in training to assist TILT staff in stewarding preserve lands and monitoring conservation easements, checking for trail markers, assisting with trail maintenance and assessing preserve health by monitoring wetland and upland plant and animal communities. 

We are seeking passionate volunteers in Jefferson and St. Lawrence counties – permanent and summer residents, students, families, landowners, as well as service and social groups – to assist in the stewardship and care of our Signature Preserves: Zenda Farm Preserve’s MacFarlane Trail, Grindstone Island Preserve’s Nature Trail and Crooked Creek Preserve’s Macsherry Trail. 

There will be four volunteer training sessions for interested volunteers (Volunteers are welcome to attend trainings at multiple preserves):

  • July 16 (Zenda Farm Preserve)
  • August 2 (Grindstone Island Nature Trail)
  • August 6 (Macsherry Trail in the Crooked Creek Preserve)
  • August 20 (Zenda Farm Preserve)

If you are interested in joining this program, please contact Sheila Swift, Preserve Stewardship Program Coordinator, at 315-686-5345 or sswift@tilandtrust.org.

The launch of the Preserve Stewardship Volunteer Program has been made possible by generous grants from the Land Trust Alliance through the New York State Conservation Partnership Program and the RBC Blue Water Project Action Community. Thank you for the support!
