Volunteers are needed to work with staff to help carry out the daily
operations of the office. Activities include
data entry, bulk mailings, filing, and organizing archival materials
like press clippings and photographs. The office hours are
Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
One of our priorities at
the North Shore Land Alliance is to educate others about the
importance of the environment and our natural surroundings.
Volunteer educators are needed for our nature walks to help children
and adults gain a better understanding and respect for the natural
world. Some of our most popular walks have included bird
observations, exploring ponds and woodlands, and investigating
specific wildlife and plants. Programs typically run about two hours
in length. Volunteers must be willing to work with children in an
outdoor setting and have a desire to expand their interest in nature
and wildlife. Previous experiences, whether it be teaching or
personal experience, can be very helpful in this area of interest.
Throughout the year the
Alliance performs many stewardship activities at its preserves.
Typical projects include removing invasive plants, restoring
trails, marking property boundaries, and general tidying up. If you
are handy with building things (and assisting others in doing so),
constructing bat and bird boxes and installing them on our preserves
would be much appreciated!
Although we call these
events “work days,” they are informal and offer a chance to
socialize with other conservation-minded people, as well as an
opportunity to explore and learn about the ecology of the preserve
where the work project is occurring.
an amateur or professional photographer, here's your chance to
capture extensive images, on an ongoing basis, to be featured in
various publications and on our website.
Photographers should have their own equipment and be able to deliver
images in digital format in a short turnaround time if necessary.
Alliance occasionally has the opportunity to assign volunteers to
steward a specific property, where they take on increased monitoring
responsibilities. Volunteers are expected to commit to visiting a
property a certain number of times per year, and provide monitoring
reports, maps, and/or pictures to document these visits.
Shore Land Alliance hosts and attends several events each year.
There is a lot of behind-the-scenes work necessary to prepare for
these events. Volunteers are needed to help conduct educational
outreach, assist with demonstrations, register individuals for
upcoming nature walks and volunteers opportunities, and distribute
NSLA promotional materials.
Plant and Wildlife
If you have expertise in
botany, birds, insects, or any other wildlife, we hope you will
biological inventory of one or more of our preserves!
