Welcome Back, Volunteers!

March 1, 2021

 

The Mendocino Land Trust is excited to announce that our volunteer days will resume in March! 

 

These important opportunities to connect with the land and give back went on hiatus in November due to rising numbers of COVID cases and limited ICU capacity. Protecting your health and the health of the community remain top priority. But if you are going out and about and are eager to get back to work, we would be grateful to have your help. Masks are required during the volunteer work day. Volunteers are reminded to socially distance from persons not in their households while working.

 

Here are March volunteer opportunities!

Thursday, March 11

Navarro Point Preserve 10 a.m. - 12 p.m.

RSVP: Please contact Monika Richardson at (707) 962-0470 or mrichardson@mendocinolandtrust.org and let her know you plan to attend!

 

Navarro Point Preserve is owned and managed by Mendocino Land Trust. We rely on volunteer stewardship workdays to maintain our network of public access trails and beaches. Volunteers spend the day pulling invasive plant species, picking up garbage, maintaining the trail, and taking in the beautiful scenery. Stewardship workdays are scheduled for the 2nd Thursday of each month and are open to all ages and experience levels.
