Stewardship Volunteer

Volunteer

Join us-stewardship work parties are fun and rewarding! Whether reestablishing native riparian plants, or preventing knapweed from taking over and displacing the wildflowers, you will be able to see the tangible results of your efforts for years to come.

How you can help

  • Join a work party to maintain and improve our native habitats
  • Help survey the wildlife and plants that live on our lands through Citizen Science
  • Maintain or build one of our outstanding trails
  • Volunteer to monitor and care for a CDLT property near your home.
  • Donate a special skills or knowledge - surveyor, tractor operator, woodworker, fence builder, forester, botanist – that could help us learn about and care for our land.

The stewardship field season runs from March - November. Volunteer opportunities are primarily announced via email and the web. Contact Kelsay Stanton at kelsay@cdlandtrust.org or 509-667-9708 to be added to our email list, or check the What's New page under volunteer oppertunities.

Site Stewards

Site Stewards are dedicated volunteers who act as the eyes and ears of  the Land Trust on property near their homes. They monitor public use, record wildlife observations, report threats and unauthorized use, and help maintain and restore habitats and facilities.

What’s expected

  • Visit our properties on a regular basis and report what you see, both the good and the bad.
  • Give us your suggestions for how we can better manage our lands. 
  • Do minor repairs such as posting and replacing CDLT signs, picking up litter, mapping weeds.
