Volunteer

The Monadnock Conservancy was founded by a group of steadfast volunteers, and we continue to depend on the generosity of people like you who are willing to lend a hand by caring for our conserved lands, organizing special events, and providing office support. Whether you can give a few hours, a few days, or a few months each year, listed below are some ways to help.


Ways You Can Help

In the Field

Land Steward

Walk the boundaries, roads, and trails on properties for which the Conservancy holds an easement or on properties owned by the Conservancy; collect information on these properties by observing the conditions of the land, location of buildings, and previous or potential changes; and then report on your observations.

Trail Steward

Adopt one of seven trails that the Conservancy maintains and check on it once every three months, cleaning up debris, and reporting on any possible violations. Potentially help with maintenance projects as needed.

Hike Co-leader

Avid walkers and hikers are needed to be on hand as “sweep” for any of the guided hikes we offer each year. All you have to do is show up, share your love of the outdoors, and help other hikers find their way too. (And maybe take a few pics.)

Program Assistant for Kids Connect! Fun on the Farm

You can provide invaluable support by being a buddy to a child or help program leaders with the day’s activities during each afternoon of the summer session. Learn more about the Kids Connect! program.

Outreach & Office Support

Photographer/Videographer

Photograph events, including our Annual Celebration in mid-September; capture images on properties we own or protected through a conservation easement; other projects as needed.

Writer

Contribute to our newsletters — both print and online. Pitch an idea to us or take on an assignment.

Mailing Crew

Help fold letters, stuff envelopes, and stamp. We need a group of volunteers a few times each year — join us every time or as little as an hour or two, we always appreciate the extra hands.

Event Helper

Help set up tables, greet arriving guests, serve food, clean up ... you name it, it makes a big difference!

Give back. Give often. We welcome all help from teenagers and adults looking to create lasting change in their community! Please email Katrina Farmer, communications and outreach manager, or call her at 603-357-0600, ext. 111.

Why I Care

I love being out on the land, and this is a way I can give back. Plus, it's always a treat to find a beaver lodge, snowshoe hare tracks, a moose antler, or bobcat scat.
