Volunteer Preserve Visitation Committee Members
We need your eyes, ears and muscles! With many preserves to manage around the Commonwealth, it’s not always possible to monitor them as often as we’d like. Our goal is to form volunteer visitation committees at our public access preserves to conduct routine surveys of the preserve and note visitor activities. Committee members will also help to remove debris, fallen branches or overgrown vegetation from trails as needed with hand tools.
We are looking for long-term committed people to monitor between four and six times a year. For a more detailed job description download our Volunteer Visitation Committee flyer (pdf, 610KB).
Preserve Monitors: Volunteer Visitation Committee
Cumberland Marsh Preserve (New Kent County, 30 miles east of Richmond)
We need your eyes, ears and muscles! With many properties to manage around the Commonwealth, it’s not always possible to monitor them as often as we’d like. Our goal is to form a volunteer visitation committee at the Cumberland Marsh boardwalk to conduct routine surveys of the property and perform basic tasks like repairing the occasional board, clearing leaves off the boardwalk, removing trash and reporting visitor activities.
We are looking for 8-12 long-term committed people to monitor between four and six times a year. If you are interested please contact Jen Dalke, volunteer coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 434-951-0572.
An orientation will be held in the fall or winter to get volunteers familiar with the property and trained on what to look for and how to deal with various visitor issues.
If you are interested in becoming the committee scheduler manager for this group, please let me know. Schedule manager duties can be found here.
