Volunteer Monitor Training

Volunteer monitors at work!

We visit each of our 11 conservation easements every single year, to make sure that the nearly 22,500 acres of ranchland, wildlife habitat, and open space remain protected. Forever. And every year, volunteers assist staff in monitoring these properties between May and September.
Easement monitoring is one of our most important responsibilities as a land trust, and it just happens to be one of the most fun, too!  All of our current protected properties are private and not open to the public, so this is a unique opportunity to explore beautiful places that few people are able to visit and see firsthand why they're important to protect. 

We encourage anyone interested in monitoring to join us for a training session about conservation easement monitoring on Thursday, May 21st, at 5:30 pm in the Shasta Land Trust Office.

This 1.5 hour training will cover the what, why, and how of monitoring, and include plenty of time for questions and discussion. Light refreshments will also be provided. RSVP’s are appreciated, but not required. Feel free to bring friends or family who might be interested in monitoring with us!

Please contact Jake at 530.241.7886 or jdickmann@shastalandtrust.org if you are interested in monitoring properties with the Shasta Land Trust this summer!
