Give the gift of time.
Help out by serving on a committee, tabling at public events, or helping with mailings and other periodic projects. Host a gathering of your friends to learn about Kestrel and local land protection. You provide the food, drinks, and atmosphere; we’ll bring the information and slideshow!
Help us care for properties protected by fee or conservation restriction. We are looking for committed volunteers who love the outdoors and would like to help monitor and maintain conserved lands in our region. Click on the title of each role to see a detailed description of the responsibilities.
Volunteer Property Monitors regularly visit and inspect designated properties to document current conditions in writing and photographs.
Volunteer Caretakers “adopt” a Kestrel property they would like to visit regularly for recreational purposes, and communicate any changes noted during their normal course of activities there.
Volunteer Land Stewards answer our rallying cry to help with physical land management activities such as trail maintenance, trash cleanup, and non-native invasive plant control. Currently we conduct one or two projects annually—with your help, we hope to do more!
