The Trustees of Reservations, Southeast Region

  • 2 people are interested

Opportunity Overview
Weir River Farm and World’s End, both in Hingham, are crisscrossed with historic stone walls. During the year, our stone walls require additional attention to maintain their integrity as they become overgrown with weeds, trees, vines, and other invasive plants that interfere with their solidarity. We are currently looking for enthusiastic volunteers who share our love of the outdoors and wish to "adopt" a section of stone wall to maintain. This volunteer opportunity is perfect for someone looking for a way to get involved on a very flexible schedule.

  • Able to use hand tools safely and effectively
  • Able to follow instructions and work independently
  • Dress in appropriate clothes and footwear
  • Ability to stand for extended periods of time
  • Ability to walk on a variety of surfaces including grass, snow, ice or uneven surfaces
