With feedback from last year’s volunteer cohort, we’re kicking things off a little earlier this year. The 2024 monitoring season will run from April 1st  – November 1st . To accommodate that earlier start date, application surveys are open from now until February 23rd.

If selected, new volunteers must attend an hour-long, 1:1 online training session in March, scheduled at your convenience. New volunteers will also be required to do a short field training with a staff-person or experienced volunteer prior to monitoring. Experienced volunteers may wish to meet for an online 1:1 meeting and/or field “refresher”, but it is not required. 

Local concentrations of volunteers and/or a mismatch between volunteer availability and available properties may mean that not everyone who applies will be taken on as a volunteer monitor this year. In the event that you are not selected, we hope that you will be able to get involved with Landmark Conservancy in other ways, like attending a hike, workday, or other event.

Please reach out to Katie Hahn, stewardship coordinator at katie@landmarkwi.org with any questions. Thank you!
