Volunteer Agreement

Brandon is preparing firebreaks with the intent of burning in a few weeks.  They will start mowing on September 9.  He could use assistance beginning on Friday per the schedule above.  There are two specific tasks that he needs volunteers for.

#1  –  Backpack blowing –   To be clear, this is miles of blowing dry vegetation from a 20 ft wide mowed line.  The backpacks are about 20 lbs and the walking is easy and over mostly smooth ground.  These will be 4 hour shifts.  
#2  –  Seed collection –  Harvesting seed from multiple prairie locations that comprise the “meadow”

The Nature Conservancy requires that you sign there standard waiver and also COVID waiver that must be signed by all volunteers.  The (over 65) restriction has been removed.  These are detailed documents that you should review prior to  volunteering.      

Volunteers will need to bring their own drinking water, gloves and face mask (required).   You will also need PROOF OF HEALTH INSURANCE.
