People make the difference!

SWMLC volunteers provide time, wisdom, energy, expertise, and immeasurable assistance to our conservation efforts, allowing us to broaden our resources.

There are many different ways to volunteer.

Volunteers are needed for stewardship, land protection, and outreach. Opportunities include: lopping brush, putting up signs, and pulling invasive plants; conducting species inventories; setting up and staffing information tables for events; and taking photographs on preserves and easements, and at special events. Volunteers also serve on committees such as Stewardship Team, Land Protection Team, and Outreach Team, or on our Board of Directors

Your support as a volunteer will have a lasting impact on the natural and scenic features that make our region so unique.

Thank you . . . we couldn’t do it without you!

Don’t thank me, it’s my organization too! This is what we all like to do, and what we care about. It’s the volunteer-driven heart that makes the organization so strong.
