Volunteer Opportunity

COVID 19 is creating many unique challenges for literally everyone and the Land Bank is no exception. The Land Bank typically uses a variety of strategies to achieve stewardship activities including volunteer work parties, collaborating with partners, engaging special interest groups, and leveraging help from youth conservation corps type organizations.

At this time we are not able to use any of these groups. Coupled with this, we are currently short-staffed on San Juan Island. Even with these challenges, and as we move into less restrictions, the Land Bank cares deeply about the health and safety of the community. We intend to take a cautionary approach to volunteer work parties.

With this in mind, we are soliciting volunteer assistance for help with noxious weed control. Rather than running work parties, we are hoping that individuals, or households which are in the same “germ bubble” might be able to assist with weed control along roads and trails of publicly accessible preserves.

Please reach out if you’d like to help. We can assign you to a specific area, provide resources on best practices, and we try to track volunteer time. Whether you are able to spend five minutes or five hours, every bit helps maintain and enhance the beauty and ecological function of your conservation lands.

RSVP to Tanja (tanjaw@sjclandbank.org) or Doug (dougmc@sjclandbank.org) for more information.
