Conservation Committee

Members of the Land committee generally work in land protection/conservation or stewardship. Stewardship involves site management and maintenance, such as invasive species or brush removal, overseeing mowing schedules, bird surveys and field trips.

Land Conservation involves permanent protection of land as wildlife habitat for  endangered and threatened grassland birds. Experienced volunteers may assist with land acquisitions or help expand our conservation initiatives. Members should be positive, open-minded and committed to conserving land for endangered and threatened grassland birds.
