Hike Leader & Shepherd Training 101

Join us on March 3, 2018 for our annual Hike Leader & Shepherd Training 101 course - highly recommended for new and experienced hike program volunteers! We’ll go for a morning hike and address some common on-trail scenarios. We’ll then provide lunch before an afternoon classroom session to ensure you have the best information and resources needed to lead and/or shepherd successful Friends hikes.

Stewardship Work Parties 

Lend-a-hand this spring and summer by helping clean up landscapes, pulling invasive plants, collecting and planting native seeds, removing old fencing, tabling at trailheads and more. No experience needed – we’ll provide all tools and training! Most stewardship work parties will be led by Land Trust Stewardship Coordinator Sara Woods on our land trust properties from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. unless otherwise noted.
