Do you care about the natural places within our community? Do you enjoy meeting new people? Want to learn more about the ecology of this area?

Coastal Mountains Land Trust is seeking new volunteers to help with a wide range of projects including field work, preserve monitoring, invasive plant control, community outreach, office mailings, and event logistics.

“Coastal Mountains Land Trust has always been an organization that relies on the participation of the many volunteers that support it,” explains Ian Stewart, Executive Director. “Our lands are best cared for when the community is directly involved in their stewardship.”

For those interested in learning more, the Land Trust has scheduled an orientation session Thursday, April 12, from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m. at the Carver Memorial Library in Searsport.

The Land Trust’s stewardship staff, along with an active volunteer, will provide an overview of the Land Trust’s conservation programs, as well as a summary of the volunteer positions that the Land Trust is seeking to fill.

Please register to attend by calling the Land Trust at 236-7091, or emailing
