Preserve Stewards: The Nature Conservancy currently manages 6 preserves, scattered across Northeast Ohio, totaling more than 3,000 acres. They contain a variety of unique natural communities including kettle lakes, bogs and fens. Preserve steward volunteers are needed to insure these preserves get the care they deserve. There are many ways that you can help out at your favorite preserve such as with ecological surveys, trail maintenance, invasive removal, restoration activities, data entry and recordkeeping.
