About

Join our team of conservation enthusiasts! Get an intimate view of land conservation when you adopt a property and become a volunteer land steward. As you return to your conserved place throughout the year, you’ll learn new skills, make friends, and contribute to a community effort to sustain clean water, abundant fish and wildlife, and diverse natural resource economies.

Special Lands Stewards assist McKenzie River Trust’s Stewardship Program by helping to implement the conservation management objectives for one of our conserved properties. Special Lands Stewards serve as the eyes and ears of the preserve and work closely with Mckenzie River Trust staff and other volunteers to conduct routine maintenance of the preserve, report poaching, and illegal dumping, maintain boundary marking, and undertake special projects as needed. Special Lands Stewards are provided an in-depth training and ongoing support and should be available to commit to the property for a minimum of two years. This is a great opportunity for those interested in gaining and/or increasing their skills in plant and animal identification, surveying, mapping, and leadership.
