Volunteers at the Indian Point Preserve Clean Up on May 7
Thank you to all!
 

Weekly Trail Work Days Starting June 22!

 
We have hired a full-time, seasonal Maine Conservation Corps Environmental Steward to complete trail and preserve stewardship tasks, engage volunteers, and to lead a new weekly volunteer stewardship day. Our preserve and trail maintenance – stewardship work – is completely dependent upon volunteer support.  Over the past five years, we have increased our conserved lands by more than sixty percent and increased trail miles by fifty percent. While we enjoy a dedicated and energetic group of stewardship volunteers, now is the time to increase and diversify our volunteer base and ensure that we maintain high-quality trails for all.
 
Jake Manning, the new Environmental Steward, will provide a temporary boost as we maintain more trail than ever before, currently 25 miles, and as we prepare to hold the grand openings of three new preserves this summer!  Jake's first day with FBC will be June 6 and he will be with us through November.  If you happen upon this hard-working individual at a preserve this season, be sure to stop and say hello!
 
Please consider volunteering with us!  Spending a few hours working outside in the woods is guaranteed to leave you feeling refreshed and satisfied knowing you've contributed to maintaining and preserving a valuable community asset.  

 
Weekly volunteer workdays will take place on Wednesday mornings starting June 22
 
For more information on volunteering, contact eileen@frenchmanbay.org or 422-2328.
No stewardship experience needed; all are welcome!
