See details for each volunteer opportunity below
1. Volunteer Water Stewards
This May will mark the start of PRLT’s third season collecting data on water quality from throughout the region, and we need your help. Water stewards attend a training led by the Maine DEP (Saturday, May 4th) and then collect water samples and data every other Saturday morning from mid-May through mid-September. Water Stewards are placed in teams of 2-3, so you don’t need to be available for every sampling day.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, and you can sign up here.
2. Trail Work Volunteers
We have a lot of exciting projects happening on our preserves this field season. We are creating trails, building kiosks, posting new signage, and performing trail maintenance throughout the region. Our dedicated volunteer preserve stewards are spearheading these efforts, and they would love to have your help. You can volunteer on your own or with a small group, whatever fits your interest and schedule. For trail work, sign up to volunteer here.
3. Preserve Stewards
We are looking for new volunteer Stewards for our Preserves. Volunteer Stewards check for problems and perform basic maintenance. This is a great way to learn new trails and really get to know one of the Preserves. It is a wonderful volunteer opportunity for people who want to help outside on their own schedule. Click here to sign-up.
4. Wildlife Initiative Volunteers
In the 2019 field season we will begin several projects to improve wildlife habitat at public access preserves. Projects will include removal of invasive Japanese knotweed from floodplains, making and posting wooden boxes for little brown bats, planting pollinator gardens in meadows, and planting trees along riverbanks.
