Stewardship Workdays

The Nature Conservancy was built on the dedication of our members and volunteers. Today we still rely on the support of those who are interested in helping the environment and working with others who share their passion for nature. By contributing your time and skills, you will be making a huge difference on the natural communities we've vowed to protect and preserve. Join us and your fellow nature lovers for one our upcoming workdays:

Many hands are desirable for this busy workday of planting 2,000+ plants. (Wow!) No experience necessary. Feel free to bring your lunch and have a picnic on the prairie or hike a trail at Kankakee Sands after the workday. R. S.V.P.’s appreciated.

Butterfly Monitors: May-September
Butterflies are a key indicator of the health of our prized, remnant ecosystems, like the globally rare dune and swale ecosystem, found in northern Lake County, Indiana, in the Tolleston Strand Plain. To help track butterfly populations in various remnant natural areas, the Southern Lake Michigan Rim Project Office is annually in need of monitors from May through September to weekly collect data on the same route. No experience is required but you will need to attend one of the annual training events. If you would like to learn more, listen to John Henry Drake, Regional Ecologist at the Indiana Chapter, on a replay of an internet radio interview conducted in January 2013. For more information or to sign up, contact John Henry Drake.
