Trail Crew: Wednesdays 10 am

Trail Crew each Wednesday at 10 am  is a volunteer program each Wednesday (and as scheduled) working on RRCT trails and preserves — and helping support trail partnerships — in Yarmouth, North Yarmouth, Pownal, New Gloucester, Durham, Gray, and Auburn. Details and schedule here.

Volunteer Steward Program

As RRCT conserves more land in the watershed, dedicated volunteer presence on our preserves is more important than ever. Volunteer Stewards have a rewarding role in which they become closely connected with a special place while acting as RRCT’s eyes, ears, and extra hands. Resources and more information here.

Get Out! Nature Walks: Once per month

Royal River Conservation Trust and The Chebeague and Cumberland Land Trust partner in sponsoring Get Out! Nature Walks. These walks are lead by a Maine Master Naturalist or some other skilled and knowledgeable volunteer. Details and schedule here.
