Volunteer Orientation

Volunteer Orientation

Do you value preserving our land and water resources for future generations?

 Do you want to help, but wonder what you can do?

The Tecumseh Land Trust not only welcomes volunteers, but also has a variety of ways you can get involved to make a difference in the environmental, agricultural, and economic health of your community.

Our primary purpose is to work with land owners to preserve their unique properties through conservation easements. An easement permanently restricts future residential or commercial development of the land.

 Volunteers are vital to this work. Projects for volunteers include, but are by no means limited to: farm and nature tours, writing and taping stories, social media support, fundraising activities, local foods support, presentations and displays, outdoor work crews, office help, kids activities, and information collection. TLT likes to build on the interests and skills of its volunteers whenever possible, and welcomes your fresh ideas.

 Learn more about TLT’s work and how you can get involved at a volunteer orientation session on Saturday, August 27, from 10 a.m. to noon. It’s a great time to join the TLT volunteer team! Please register, so we have enough printed materials and refreshments, by calling 937-767-9490 or e-mailing krista@tecumsehlandtrust.org (subject: volunteering). The training will be at our offices on Whitehall Farm, at 4633 US Route 68, 45387.
