May through September, the NCLC stewardship crew hosts a weekly work day to tackle various projects on NCLC lands. Volunteers are welcome to join any or all Wednesdays. Typically the group meets up at Circle Creek Conservation Center and often works somewhere on that large property. Other days the group carpools to another property, depending on what the land steward determines to be the priority for that day. W³ days often involve weed removal activities but may include other kinds of projects, such as seeding, native plant caretaking, trail building/maintenance, and site cleanups.

May 2017: Every Wednesday in May the Warriors will be busting Scotch broom with Eric on one of our properties.

June and July 2017: Most of our efforts these two months will be focused on pulling out invasive policeman’s helmet at Circle Creek with Melissa and Amy. Read more about policeman’s helmet.

Why join us? To assist the stewardship team (they can always use extra hands). To personally help care for NCLC’s conserved lands. To enjoy a day outside in hidden parts of the coastal landscape. And to meet new people or enjoy a day working alongside old friends.

Contact the NCLC land steward to get on the W³ email list. You’ll get an email each week (usually Monday) providing a quick rundown of what that week’s work will entail. In general, you’ll want to bring:

  • Water
  • A snack
  • Gloves and rubber boots (if you have them)
  • A hat and sunscreen

We have boots (if it happens to be wet) and gloves on site if you need them, and we’ll provide tools for whatever we’ll be doing that day. You’re also welcome to bring your own tools if suitable for the task at hand. Contact the land steward with any questions.
