ALTON, April 19, 2015 — To celebrate the upcoming Earth Day, groups of experienced and budding conservationists took to the trails of Mount Major on Sunday with hopes of making it a nicer place for hikers.
Join Forest Society staff and other volunteers for a day of spring cleaning at Lost River Reservation. Trail clearing, native garden pruning, landscaping, and other assorted tasks to help Lost River get ready for opening weekend. Lunch will be provided, and there will be an opportunity to walk through the gorge and caves in the afternoon. Bring work clothes, boots, work gloves and water (lunch provided). If you have questions, contact Carrie Deegan at email@example.com or 603-224-9945.
Since the Forest Society was founded in 1901, volunteer involvement has been a cornerstone to our success as one of the leading conservation organizations in the Northeast. Volunteers regularly contribute more than 6,000 hours a year to the Forest Society!
Our land protection and forestry mission would simply not be possible without the dedication of this cadre of volunteers working in both long-term recurrent roles and on shorter-term, episodic projects.
