"When presented with the question of why I want to volunteer for the Keweenaw Land Trust, the answer is very simple-it's a great opportunity to be part of an organization that values the land, promotes conservation, and works to prevent over-development and urban sprawl.

I moved to the Keweenaw because of its unique environment, wide open spaces and vast natural resources available to explore, and the Land Trust is working to protect and preserve the very way of life I envisioned. As a volunteer, I can be part of that preservation effort-helping to ensure that the Keweenaw, with all its natural beauty, will be available for future generations."

Paul Sulisz, Volunteer Steward

Many Ways to Help

  • Volunteers with experience in ecology, botany, geology, history, birding, title searches, surveying and boundary marking, geographic information systems, mapping and photography bring valuable services to the baseline documentation and monitoring of the Trust's preserves and conservation easements. 

  • In the field, volunteers may build trails, work on restoration projects, help control invasive species of plants, and encourage native ones. 

  • In the office, volunteers work on the newsletter and Web site, record keeping and correspondence, conduct membership campaigns, write grant proposals, and help with fundraising events. Attorneys, appraisers, and surveyors offer free or reduced-fee professional services. 

  • Volunteers may serve as interns and learn about all aspects of running a land trust. 

  • Many volunteers also donate materials and supplies to the Keweenaw Land Trust.
