How to Become a Land Steward
*** The Spring 2021 Online-Hybrid Land Steward Training Class is FULL - Please contact the Land Steward Program Coordinator for info about opportunities and the Fall training ***
We have transitioned the long-standing Land Steward Training to a *new* online-hybrid volunteer training program which was launched in Spring 2021. New volunteer Land Stewards are required to participate in the training program before being assigned a forest reservation.
Topics covered in the training include Forest Society organizational overview, forest management and timber harvesting, trail maintenance, map & survey reading and compass navigation, community engagement, and recreation management. Online presentations & webinars will be supplimented with in-the-field timber harvest tours, small group & one-on-one visits to a forest near you!
For more information about becoming a volunteer Land Steward, please email Zach Pearo.
