Volunteers are the backbone of the Land Trust. We are extremely fortunate many dedicated volunteers bring their energy and talents to ensure the protection and appreciation of Bloomfield’s natural resources. The all-volunteer Board of Directors oversees committees where the work is done. From land acquisition and membership to property management and stewardship, volunteers handle every aspect of the Land Trust’s operations.
If there is not a volunteer to do a task, the task does not get done. And there is much to do! It’s very rewarding to be part of saving our natural resources and protecting our environment for future generations. It’s also easy to get started: email us or check the volunteer box on the printable mail-in membership/volunteer form.
Become a Steward and take responsibility for watching over a land trust property, or become a Neighborhood Helper to assist a Steward.
Our steward chair periodically sends out emails asking you to meet on a land trust preserve to clear trails, control invasive plants or perform any needed maintenance. We keep an email list and notify interested volunteers of the time and place for a work morning. Come as you can, volunteers are not expected to show up at all work parties. Email us to get your name on the list. This is an excellent way to introduce yourself to our Land Trust.
Assist with outdoor and indoor programs for both adults and children. Have an idea for a program? Let us know!
Assist with Winter, Spring Lecture Series or help us out when we set up an information table at a local event.
Contribute to our Newsletter, write press releases for the media. Or perhaps you’d like to be a newsletter editor…so many possibilities to use your talents.
