Interested in Becoming One of TILT's 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.
Volunteers who complete our trainings will receive an "I Volunteer for the 1000 Islands" tee shirt and Stewardship Volunteer Guidebook.
If you are interested in joining this program, please contact Sheila Swift, Preserve Stewardship Program Coordinator, at 315-686-5345 or email@example.com. Upcoming group training sessions for volunteers will be publicized as they are scheduled.
The launch of the Preserve Stewardship Volunteer Program has been made possible by:
The New York State Conservation Partnership Program (NYSCPP) and the New York Environmental Protection Fund. The NYSCPP is administered by the Land Trust Alliance (LTA), in coordination with the State Department of Environmental Conservation and RBC Blue Water Community Action Grant.
Thank you for the support!
