Become a Volunteer

The Westmoreland Conversancy has frequent work projects occurring on reserve properties. Typical projects include removing invasive plants, repairing a trail, marking a property boundary, or cleaning up an illegal dump. Volunteers are always welcome at these events, as many hands make for light work.

Although we call these events “work days,” they are informal and offer a chance to socialize with other conservation-minded people, as well as an opportunity to explore and learn about the ecology of the preserve where the work project is occurring. All work day events will be posted here on our website and in our newsletter.

The Westmoreland Conversancy occasionally has the opportunity to assign volunteers to steward a specific property, where they take on increased monitoring responsibilities. Volunteers need to commit to visiting a property a certain number of times per year, and must provide monitoring reports, maps, and pictures to document these visits. Openings for property-specific assignments are made only as available, and we cannot guarantee that all applicants will be assigned to a specific property. We typically tap volunteers who have shown a strong commitment to the program by volunteering at our work days, and look for good fits between a volunteer’s interests and skills and the needs of the properties.
