Manada Conservancy Hosts Feb. 10 Webinar On Volunteers In Land Stewardship & Community Outreach

Dauphin County-based
Manada Conservancy will host a February 10 webinar on Volunteers In Land Stewardship & Community Outreach from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Land protection is essential for biodiversity conservation, water quality protection, and climate resilience.  

The work of land trusts is becoming increasingly relevant, important, and needed. However, most trusts operate on a shoestring budget with little (or no) staff.  

Volunteers fill that gap and perform critically important land protection and stewardship services that would go undone if it weren’t for their work.

The Lancaster Conservancy recently developed and implemented a Volunteer Land Steward program to increase the organization’s capacity to perform land stewardship and community outreach.  

Keith Williams directs that program and will discuss best practices from a blending of land stewardship and volunteer management perspectives. 

He will discuss the structure of the Lancaster Conservancy program, lessons learned, a few invasive plant management methods that have worked well with volunteers, and examples of why this work is so critically important.
