Sullivan County welcomes educators, school groups, organizations, and community members to volunteer through service learning projects. We want to create partnerships where everyone benefits from the experience. We will also provide educators with curriculum surrounding these projects to create a more holistic learning experience for students. These are just a few of the projects we have come up with, but if you have other ideas for service learning, we want to hear them!
The Conservation District could use your help with natural resources, conservation, and environmental education projects throughout the year. Do you like get your hands dirty in the garden, create lesson plans, work with kids, enter data into computers, design promotional materials, organize things, make food for events, build trails or take photographs? Whatever your skill set, we can use it! Let us know how you would like to get involved by filling out our Volunteer Survey.
We can use volunteers in these areas:
Trail & Kiosk Maintenance
Biotic Inventory - iNaturalist
Plant Sale & Seed Saving/Sorting
Marketing & Outreach
Specific Opportunities - Winter 2023
Do you want to help with or even lead some of our educational programs? January is a great time to get started as we provide winter enrichment activities for K-5th grade students once a week for the whole month to a couple of schools in Claremont. You can tag along with Dawn and/or lead an activity (with support). Requires a background check to work with children.
Snow Snake Games
The Ko'asek Traditional Band of the Sovereign Abenaki Nation are sharing their 9th Annual Snow Snake Games with the public this February and are reaching out to families by connecting with local schools. They could use help with school outreach and with building the snow snake run in the field. The more people that help with making the run, the better! Please reach out to Chief Paul Bunnell if you are able to help with one of these things. There may be other ways to support the games too.
Hike one or more of the County Trails this winter and share any maintenance concerns with us. Is there a tree down across the trail? Do we need more signs or markers in any spots? Are there brochures available at the kiosks?
