The conservation community is fortunate in its abundance of committed volunteers. Having repeatedly proven the things they can accomplish, they dispel the myth that “you get what you pay for.”
The achievements of these volunteers are numerous and tangible all across the American landscape. For example, nearly all land trusts in the U.S. started as all-volunteer organizations, and most remain so for many years afterwards. Volunteer staff have proven themselves over fifty years by building the land conservation movement. The contributions of such individuals form the roots of conservation today and have led the way in protecting the natural, historic and special places we so dearly love.
As we move through our beta phase, we'll add more about volunteer issues and opportunities.
