On Sunday, April 10th, we invite you to join us out on the trails, in the back woods and across farms for our annual monitoring day! Our trustees and staff are busy preparing for this annual event, which is one of our most important stewardship responsibilities. It is a big undertaking and we can’t do it alone! We need your help. Each year, we have more properties to be monitored, and therefore, need more of you to get out there on our behalf. Those who have previously monitored know the drill well; those who haven’t tried it yet, we encourage you to join us this year. You will enjoy the day, and you will learn all you need to know before you set out to monitor. Monitoring Day will begin at 2 p.m., and we ask volunteers to plan to meet at 1:45 p.m. at the Barn. If you have done this in the past and want to monitor a certain property, please let Jane know in advance so the property folder can be waiting for you when you arrive. If you don’t have a preference, come and choose the property you would like to monitor. We will have a short tutorial session, do our best to pair the old-timers with the first-timers and send you off. After you have completed your work, return to the Barn for a homemade thank you dinner and bonfire (weather permitting).This is a good activity for the whole family, so do bring the kids or grandkids along! Monitoring each of our properties is a required activity and we are always thankful for your participation in this event. Please let us know that you can help by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
