MORGAN DUKE CONSERVATION SOCIETY

Morgan Duke Conservation Society is looking for anyone who would like to help pick up litter in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.



Parkwide Litter Patrol (NC/TN) Volunteers work independently (alone or with partners) to pick up
and remove litter along trails, at overlooks, and at busy sites. Litter Patrol Volunteers may focus on a
specific trail or section, or perform services while exploring front and backcountry trails, visitor sites,
and roads throughout the Park.


Desired: Motivation to work independently and follow prescribed
safety protocol. Learn and share with others about Leave No Trace (LNT) ethics. Interact with visitors
in a respectful manner. When appropriate, inform visitors about the Park’s 'pack-in / pack-out’ policy
and wildlife safety practices regarding disposal of waste.

There are no set amount of hours that you have to work and no minimum amount of times that you have to volunteer.

Who can volunteer?

Mission Statement

Morgan Duke Conservation Society is committed to aiding and supporting numerous conservation projects in the Adirondack Mountains Catskill Park and other locations throughout the country. There are multiple types of projects that we typically involve ourselves in, but all of them come together to support the larger role of conservation. Many of these projects are carried out in the same Hudson River Recreation Area that first gave James Sullivan the vision for the Morgan Duke Conservation Society.

Description

Specifically, some of the projects we work on are:

Reforestation, and other replanting projects to replace vegetation harmed by human footfalls;
Providing duck nest boxes and other types of birdhouses;
Conducting beach cleanups on the sand dunes, shorelines and on the trails in the forests.
