The Barrington Land trust is always looking for volunteers to help to preserve the remaining natural resources of Barrington, Rhode Island and adjacent areas including water resources, streams, ponds, marshlands, woodlands, and scenic and natural sites, as well as the plant and animal life. Here are some ways you can get involved.
Land Stewardship Program
Land stewards help monitor the properties owned and managed by the Barrington Land Trust. They monitor their designated property for invasive species, waste dumping and other encroachments. Land stewards may also participate in trail maintenance and clean up. To learn more about becoming a land steward, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tuesday Trail Team
The Tuesday Trails Team meets on the second Tuesday of every month (weather permitting) from 10 am to noon to help manage and maintain the properties owned and managed by the Barrington Land Conservation Trust. Work includes removal of invasive plants, trail maintenance and construction, bridge repair, trash removal and beach cleanups.
It’s a great opportunity to get outdoors, learn about local habitats, including best practices in managing these diverse properties, and to work alongside a great team. You’ll visit some hidden gems of undeveloped properties in town. Work is directed by an experienced project leader. All you need to bring is good shoes, work gloves, loppers and/or pruning shears if you have them, and a love of the outdoors. A regular commitment, though desirable, is not necessary.
If Tuesdays don’t work for you, let us know when you’re available. With sufficient interest, we can start a team on another day of the week.
