The Sourland Conservancy is looking for volunteers to help fund development The Conservancy’s mission is to protect this unique, beautiful and invaluable resource. We are facing a crisis: over one million trees will die in the next few years due to an invasive insect, the emerald ash borer. This will have a devastating effect on the ecosystem.
The Conservancy needs to expand our fund development efforts and dedicated volunteers to help meet this challenge. We also wish to build partnerships with businesses and corporations in the area. Volunteers with business experience are needed to help us identify potential partners, craft an effective approach, and steward these relationships. We can offer hands-on engagement opportunities for employees in a variety of areas including marketing, communications, research - and planting trees!
If you are looking for meaningful volunteer work, love meeting new people, or are passionate about improving our environment and strengthening your community, this will be a perfect fit for you!
Volunteers may work remotely. Sourland area residents will probably be most effective in this position.

The Sourland Conservancy carries out its mission to protect the Sourland region through educational programs and advocacy efforts. The Sourland region is a 90 square mile area of critical forest, grassland and wetland habitats that lies within parts of Hunterdon, Mercer and Somerset counties. It is an island of biodiversity in a sea of encroaching sprawl. Characterized by a fragile eological balance, the Sourland Mountain region face pressures that threaten to deplete and degrate the water and delicate ecology of the area. The region boasts the largest contiguous forest in Central NJ and is an essential stopover for Neotropical migrant songbirds. The Sourland Conservancy seeks to educate residents and visitors to the Sourlands about its ecological, historical and recreational value. The organization also advocates for municipal ordinances that support the protection and preservation of the Sourlands.
