Volunteer trainings to be hosted in October
Do you have an interest in land conservation? Are you fascinated by natural history, wildlife, and orienteering? Do you want to help protect the Long Trail or Appalachian Trail? If so, you may want to become a volunteer corridor monitor!
More than forty GMC volunteer monitors regularly walk the protected trail corridor to ensure that conservation restrictions are being upheld, to help maintain boundaries, and to gather valuable natural and recreational resource information. Off the trail, corridor monitors are rewarded by vistas, flora, and fauna too remote of the average hiker to see. Moss covered spruce groves where humans haven’t trampled for years. Babbling streams of crystal clear water. Groves of unfurling wildflowers and the occasional wildlife sighting you can brag about for years.
GMC is hosting two Corridor Monitor Trainings this fall to give you the skills needed to volunteer.
We will cover map and compass use, conservation easements, surveys, boundaries, and natural history. This training is free and open to the public.
