Land conservation groups seek volunteers



WHITNEYVILLE — The Downeast Coastal Conservancy and the Downeast Salmon Federation are seeking volunteers to help with property stewardship and monitoring.

Interested volunteers are invited to a workshop at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 22, at the Hillgrove Community Hall in Whitneyville. The workshop will focus on property monitoring and other stewardship-related volunteer opportunities.

The first portion of the workshop will take place inside for a discussion of the importance of monitoring, what is involved in a monitoring visit and other types of stewardship work the organizations do. Following the discussion, the group will head out to the Machias River Preserve for a more practical discussion about monitoring and stewardship and go through a monitoring visit in the field.

The workshop is free and open to anyone. Snacks and coffee will be provided.

For more information, contact the Downeast Coastal Conservancy’s stewardship director, Kyle Winslow, at 255-4500, or email him at [email protected]
