Volunteer with the Rehoboth Land Trust!

Posted

Your Rehoboth Land Trust is actively seeking volunteers to fill a range of needs. Make new friends and serve your community as a team leader, board member, advisor, crew member, or all of the above!

Some of the skills and roles listed below are more indoor or office type work, while others are outdoor in a variety of working conditions. Volunteers with trucks/trailers and outdoor equipment are always appreciated.

To the next generation of dedicated conservationists: RLT properties are protected for the future, and we need you to help defend and expand them beyond today!

INDOOR
• legal advice - provide occasional guidance on matters such as contract review, liability, title research, conveyance, nonprofit compliance
accounting support - provide occasional guidance on best practices regarding bookkeeping, nonprofit financial compliance, tax reporting

OUTDOOR
• construction and repair - boardwalks, parking areas, signage, and other items need maintenance
trail creation and maintenance - some of this is simple trimming to keep trails open, but occasional removal of downed trees and branches is needed; some properties will need to have trails built
identification and management of invasive species - we won't win every battle, but let's not lose the war!

HYBRID (indoor and outdoor)
• mappers - skilled in the use of Arc-GIS, USGS, CalTopo, Garmin, and other platforms and tools to create and update property maps
presenters – Calling all naturalists, environmental professionals, current/former science & art teachers, and crafters! Share your expertise by leading walks, giving presentations, or preparing hands-on activities for all ages centered around plants, animals, and environmental issues.
social butterflies – leverage Instagram to showcase our properties and events
photography – expand our photo library for use in publications and online

Some of these needs can be accomplished by individuals working almost as lone wolves in a meeting-free forest. In other cases, you will be part of a team. Don’t see your skill or talent on this list? Reach out and we’ll work together to find a role that’s right for you.
