Stewardship Saturdays - Columbia Springs
Stewardship Saturdays : October 21, 10am-1pm
These events are for drop-in volunteers who want to spend a couple of hours helping out without making a long-term commitment. Stewardship Saturdays happen just about every month. Projects typically include planting trees, removing invasive species, trail maintenance, and improving the accessibility and safety of site features. We'll end the event with an activity like building bird feeders, weaving baskets from ivy, picking blackberries, or a guided hatchery tour. We provide snacks, tools (including gloves), training, and Volunteer Leads to lead groups of volunteers with various projects. Volunteers are asked to wear outdoor and work-appropriate clothing (no open-toe shoes, please!).
Children must be at least 7 years old to participate. Children ages 7-15 are welcome to volunteer with their parent or guardian. Teens ages 16 and 17 can volunteer with parent or guardian’s signed permission. We welcome all ages and abilities; if you have special needs or limited mobility, please let us know so that we can make sure to have some projects that are right for you!
These events begin at 10 a.m. in the SWIFT classroom (inside the main hatchery building by the round cement fish ponds here at Columbia Springs). Volunteers must be present for the orientation, which begins at 10:10 a.m., in order to participate. We reserve 12:30-1 p.m. for a special end-of-event activity. Signing up ahead of time to participate in Stewardship Saturday is encouraged; due to number of supplies and safety considerations, we may have to turn people away who don’t register ahead of time. To sign up, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
