Join Island Nature Trust for a volunteer orientation night.
Vicki Johnson, Piping Plover Coordinator, and Julie-Lynn Zahavich, Stewardship Coordinator, are teaming up to offer two information sessions on Island Nature Trust’s volunteer programs, the Piping Plover Stewardship Program and the Conservation Guardian Program.
These sessions are meant for anyone who is interested in learning more about how to become a Piping Plover Guardian or a Conservation Guardian and what’s involved with these volunteer roles.
Plover Guardians monitor piping plover nesting beaches, talk to other beach users about how they can minimize their impact on the birds and the beach, and report their findings back to Island Nature Trust. Conservation Guardians are the eyes and ears on the ground in natural areas. They “adopt”an Island Nature Trust Natural Area, monitor for disturbances, record observations of any interesting flora and fauna, and report their sightings back to Island Nature Trust.
The first orientation will take place in Kings County at the Cardigan Farmers’ Market (338 Station Rd, Cardigan) on July 25 from 6:30-8 pm. A second orientation will take place in Prince County on July 29 at the Linkletter Community Centre (1670 Route 11, Linkletter Road, Linkletter) from 6:30-8 pm.
No registration is required and everyone is welcome to attend. Existing volunteers are also welcome to join.
