About

Opportunity Overview Many of our properties within the Greater Hingham Area offer a stunningly beautiful escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life with many trails to explore, and amazing vistas to enjoy. We welcome our beloved canine companions on our properties, but sometimes they are not the most gracious guests, running off leash and leaving behind occasional 'presents’. Assist the Stewardship Staff by joining our team as a volunteer Puppy Patrol Ambassador with the primary goal of meeting and greeting 2- and 4-legged visitors, providing information about The Trustees, and diplomatically reminding guests about our leash policy and cleaning up after their furry friends. Puppy Patrol Ambassadors are welcome to bring their own pups, in hopes of leading by example! We will provide doggie bags, gloves and trash containers for any stray packages you come across while you walk the trails. Help our Stewardship Staff continue to keep our properties clean and beautiful for everyone to enjoy.
