Conserving Long Islands Working Farms and Natural Lands

Volunteeer

There are many ways to support the work of the Peconic Land Trust. One way is to join us as a volunteer.

Our Volunteers Are The Best!

Macy's Volunteers at Bridge GardensThank you to everyone who helped us in 2015!  Whether you shared your expertise as a Connections program leader, weeded and watered planting beds at Bridge Gardens, cleared trails, helped create our successful fundraising events, or attended weekly work days at the Agricultural Center - we thank you!   The Trust relies upon you - we couldn't do what we do without your time and energy!

Interested in learning how you can join our volunteer team? Please contact Outreach Manager Kathy Kennedy at 631.283.3195 or kkennedy@peconiclandtrust.org. We would love to get you involved!

Save the Date: Our 2016 annual "Volunteer Orientation Program," is on Saturday April 16. We will once again offer the program at two locations: on the South Fork at Bridge Gardens in Bridgehampton, and on the North Fork at our North Fork Stewardship Center in Cutchogue. 

Each year our orientation attendees receive information on a variety of volunteer opportunities that suit every interest, and after the presentation concludes, enjoy light refreshments and an opportunity to meet others interested in donating time to the community.  If you missed it this year, you can still become a volunteer - just contact Kathy for more information at 631.283.3195!

We offer many interesting and exciting ways to contribute in the field as well as in the office! 

Connections Events: Work with Trust staff to greet and register attendees at the events -- workshops, hikes, farm visits, and more -- and stick around to enjoy the program.
Stewardship: Our stewardship needs are diverse -- from planting beach grass, repairing fence lines, cleaning up trails and preserves, to being the Trust's eyes and ears in the field. 
Fundraising/Office support: The Trust is always reaching out to supporters and prospects. Come work with us either in Southampton or Cutchogue and help with mailings, research and other tasks that really make a difference. 
Committees: The Trust has a number of Board-led committees that assist us in our operations, including Outreach, Public Policy, Stewardship, Philanthropy, and more. If you have expertise that you would like to share, we'd love to hear from you. 
Bridge Gardens: Beginning in early spring, and continuing into the fall, the Trust will offer public visits and activities at Bridge Gardens. We  have openings for docents, greeters, and light gardening. 

If you are interested in any of these activities -- have other ideas -- or just want to find out more, please contact Kathy Kennedy at 631.283.3195 or kkennedy@peconiclandtrust.org.  Minors are welcome as volunteers, with parental approval, and our youngest helpers will need to be accompanied by an adult. 

We look forward to working with you to conserve Long Island's Working Farms, Natural Lands and Heritage!
