Stewardship Crew LeaderBy Shana Barbour
Taking part in stewardship activities like weed pulls and tree wrap outings helps volunteers understand the issues that face this well-loved urban park.
The Friends are now recruiting volunteers to assist and/or lead stewardship outings! Training to become a Stewardship Crew Leader will allow you to lead small groups of adults in stewardship-related tasks, including tree wrapping, clean-ups, weed pulls and possibly restoration site monitoring and maintenance. Volunteers must attend mandatory training scheduled for May 15 (5-9pm) and also have opportunities to practice by shadowing Friends’ staff in the field and then begin working towards leading their own outings. Stewardship Crew Leaders are needed during our fieldwork season (between May and October). Click here to view Crew Leader Volunteer Job Description.
