Each year, The Nature Conservancy recruits volunteer stewards to help monitor two of our most popular and scenic preserves, Ebey’s Landing on Whidbey Island and Foulweather Bluff in Kitsap County. Volunteers visit the preserve once per week during the summer to greet visitors, remind them about preserve rules and report any issues. What a great way to get outdoors! Some stewards have been returning each year for more than 10 years. A training meeting is held in spring for all new volunteers. To learn more, contact Barbara French.
