Natural Resources Volunteers help monitor or survey designated wildlife populations or habitat such as songbirds, raptors, turtles, dragonflies, butterfly larvae, invasive plants and others as needed.
Winter volunteer opportunities are fewer than spring-fall opportunities. Most winter needs revolve around invasive plant monitoring and management.
Natural Resources Monitors observe and record data on numbers, health and behavior of wildlife or plant populations on a pre-set trail or area. May include cleaning and repairing of nesting boxes. Basic skill level required.
Natural Resources Surveyors search for wildlife or plant populations, nests, etc. May involve mapping, use of GPS or tracking devices, and ability to accurately identify targeted species. Prior knowledge and advanced skill level required.
Locations may include:
- Crow-Hassan Park Reserve (Rogers)
- Elm Creek Park Reserve (Maple Grove)
- Eagle Lake or French Regional Parks (Plymouth)
- Noerenberg Gardens (Orono)
- Baker Parke Reserve (Maple Plain)
- Carver Park Reserve (Victoria)
