Volunteer Needs

Massachusetts Land Conservation Conference 2013

Online registration is now closed - walk-ins are welcome.  Attendee fee is $62.  Bring your own lunch, and no discounted admission applies.

Pitching in behind the scenes not only helps to keep the conference affordable, it’s also a great way to meet others who care about land conservation in Massachusetts!

Let Us Know If You Can Help
If you are interested in any of the volunteer projects below, go to www.thetrustees.org/volunteer to select "Western Massachusetts" under One-time Volunteer Opportunity and look for volunteer opportunuties with "MLCC" in the title. Or contact Volunteer Coordinator, Josiah Richards, jrichards@ttor.org or 978.840.4446 x1905.

Encourage Others to Volunteer
Do you know a high school or college student looking for a community-service projects? Or maybe a retired neighbor who likes to meet new people? Please pass along these volunteer opportunities to others who may be interested in helping out.

Notes:

  • By signing up to be a volunteer, you are not automatically registered for the conference – ALL volunteers must register for the conference separately, even if you only plan to be there part of the day.  We need a complete headcount all attendees at the conference.
  • We will waive your registration fee in exchange for at least 6 hours of volunteer work. We cannot pro-rate the registration fee if you volunteer fewer than 6 hours. Also, volunteer positions cannot be shared between two conference attendees.  If you cannot volunteer for 6 or more hours, you need to registered as a paying attendee.
  • Lunch is not included as part of your volunteer position.  Lunch costs $12 and must be reserved when you register, or you may bring your own meal.
  • Volunteer positions are available on a first-come-first-serve basis.  To be as fair as possible, the date and time of your conference registration will be used to determine order, so please register early!
