Please call the BILT office to sign up for any of these volunteer opportunities!
Easement Monitoring Visits
Each spring we visit each of our conservation easements to monitor the property. The monitoring “season” begins in February with training and visits to properties take place March through June. Contact us!
BILT is involved in a program called “Nature Mapping” with Sakai fifth grade students. Volunteers are needed to go on field trips in the spring. No experience or special knowledge is necessary, but we are always looking for people with special skills in birding, habitat protection, botany and wildlife who are happy to work with 10-11 year olds. Contact us!
BILT holds several different events each year. We always need help with the Annual Meeting (January) the Fourth of July booth and parade (July), and our annual Native Plant Sale (April). Contact us!
Help in the BILT office by answering phones, writing thank you letters, filing and data entry. We are looking for several people who could commit to a regular time slot each week and would be willing to learn some office procedures such as membership renewals and data processing. Each quarter, a delightful group of volunteers meets to stuff envelopes or organize the newsletter mailing. Also, we need photographers, writers and editors for our quarterly publication. Contact us!
We often ask science professionals to assist with baseline documentation on our easements or issues that come up during monitoring visits. Our list of science advisors includes biologists, botanists, geologists, wetlands experts, fisheries biologists, etc. Contact us!
