Give the gift of time.

Help out by serving on a committee, joining one of our Volunteer Crews, 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!

Get Out on the Land: Join the Stew Crew!

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 Land Stewards participate in outdoor, physical, group-activities conquering land management tasks such as trail maintenance, trash cleanup, and non-native invasive plant control. We will conduct 1-2 activities per month as weather permits.

Volunteer Kestrel Box Monitors are experienced birders who regularly visit and observe activity at assigned kestrel nest box(es) through the breeding season.

For more information or to sign up, contact: or call 413-549-1097.
