Stewardship Project Volunteer

SHADOW Lake Nature Preserve

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 1 person is interested
SHADOW needs your skills in marketing!

Are you looking to complete a stewardship project or small construction project? SHADOW Lake Nature Preserve is looking for a volunteer or volunteer group to build & donate one to three Boot Brush Stations for our public access trails.

This is the perfect volunteer opportunity for an Eagle Scout project or group stewardship project.

Things you will need to build and donate a Boot Brush Station to SHADOW:

  • Your own tools and skills
  • Wood/building materials
  • A boot scrubber attachment to mount to a wooden base (between $20-60)
  • **SHADOW will be responsible for station the signage


Boot Brush Stations are an important way to prevent the spread of noxious weeds by removing seeds from muddy shoes before they can spread further into the Nature Preserve. (For more information about noxious weeds and how they spread visit https://www.playcleango.org/help-stop-invasive-species-with-playcleango)

Please contact allie@shadowhabitat.org if you want to learn more about this project.
