Thank You to the William C. and Joyce C. O’Neil Charitable Trust for Extending the Grant for our O’Neil Conservation Stewards Program for Another Five Years.
North Shore Land Alliance is excited to announce the renewal of the William C. and Joyce C. O’Neil Conservation Steward Program for the next five years. We are very grateful to the William C. and Joyce C. O’Neil Charitable Trust and Trustees John Crabill and Hollis Russell for continuing this fabulous program which both helps the Land Alliance and trains the next generation of conservation stewards.
About the Program
The Land Alliance launched its college intern program in May 2016, thanks to funding from the William C. and Joyce C. O’Neil Charitable Trust. The program was modeled after the Student Conservation Association. Through this new program, our interns, who are selected on a competitive basis, will gain a variety of skills from writing management plans for preserves, mapping trails, organizing volunteer and fundraising events, managing invasive plants, installing a woodland trail at Wawapek and educating the public about conservation. It is our hope that this experience with a variety of projects, will help the O’Neil Stewards build their job skills and inspire them to consider a career in conservation.
