Field Fridays

Want to spend some time with the Stewardship Team and learn a bit more about land trust conservation sites? Sign up for a Field Friday adventure generally held on the first Friday of the month. These are working days, and are more difficult than our shorter work parties. Volunteers should be prepared for all weather conditions and have tough, weather appropriate footwear and outerwear ready to traverse rugged, uneven terrain. Volunteers will have the opportunity to visit parts of properties rarely seen by the public, learn about Whatcom Land Trust’s stewardship goals and processes, and participate in restoration and land management activities. Children are not recommended for Field Fridays as these events are longer and more strenuous. Anyone under 17 must have a parent or guardian present.

Upcoming Field fridays:

RSVP is required to participate on these Field Fridays as space is limited and the schedule may change due to weather. Because we plan our activities around the volunteers expected and sometimes have a waitlist, we would appreciate a 48 hours’ notice for any cancellations.

Please pack a lunch, water, weather appropriate layers, boots, and rain gear. Staff will provide tools and gloves for the day. The week prior to the event, staff will email you with additional details on what to expect.

Everyone will meet staff at the Whatcom Land Trust office at 8:00am, and then carpool in Land Trust vehicles to the property. We will be back at the office no later than 4:00pm. Please reach out to the Volunteer Coordinator if you would like to make other driving arrangements. Expect to stay for the entire day unless otherwise approved.

Questions: Please feel free to email our Volunteer Coordinator, Madeline Mahler,
