Monitoring Day 2023
Saturday, March 25th (9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.)

Every year, SKLT hosts Monitoring Day, an annual opportunity for volunteers to help the land trust in its monumental task of monitoring all 3,070+ acres of its protected land.

Volunteers first gather at the SKLT Barn for instructions and supplies and then visit one or more chosen properties, walk the boundaries, and report back to SKLT per the monitoring instructions. This year, we will be focusing on monitoring using the Landscape app. There will be a training on using the app on March 2nd.
