Dear Frenchman Bay Conservancy supporter,
Spring is in full swing and FBC is excited to kick-off the trail stewardship season with a few upcoming events. Trails are a critical part of our preserves; they serve as a conduit to nature for local Hancock County communities and out-of-town visitors alike. We couldn't maintain the miles of trails on our preserves for all to enjoy without committed volunteers and supporters like you. Please consider joining us for an upcoming trail stewardship day to clear trails of downed trees, prune trail edges, and remove invasive species. Trail stewardship opportunities will continue through October, so keep an eye out for future announcements.

Volunteers should wear sturdy shoes (not sandals) and work clothes. Please bring work gloves, drinking water, sunblock, hat/sunglasses, and bug spray. Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own equipment (brush trimmers, hand saws, loppers, pruning shears, shovels, rakes, etc.), but are not expected to share their equipment with others. We will also have equipment available for volunteers to use.
Check our website and facebook pages for updates and additional details closer to the work day dates.
