The Attleboro Land Trust is seeking volunteers who would like to serve as site stewards by “adopting” one of its nature preserves and helping to care for it. The duties of a site steward are to walk their property once a month, pick up litter, report vandalism, and help with routine trail maintenance.
A site steward may be an individual or a group, such as a group of neighbors, church group, youth group, or fraternal organization.
For more information on the site steward program, members of the public are invited to attend an orientation led by Charlie Adler, chair of the land trust’s property management committee, at the Richardson Preserve, 577B Wilmarth Street, on Sunday, July 23 at 1:00 pm. The orientation will include a walk around the preserve, a discussion of the challenges faced by an all-volunteer organization managing over 500 acres of conservation land, and time for questions.
If you can’t attend the orientation, but are interested in becoming a site steward, email the Attleboro Land Trust at firstname.lastname@example.org.
