Celebrating Volunteer Land Stewards!
GPC’s stewardship team monitors over 125 properties every year, and we couldn’t do it without our Volunteer Land Stewards (VoLS). Check out some of our accomplishments with our VoLS this year:
37 VoLS conducted 52 site visits on GPC preserves.
VoLS contributed 80 hours towards monitoring - that’s over $2,500 in donated time!
GPC’s stewardship team is tasked with monitoring over 125 properties every year. If you’ve kept up with our previous communications, you’ll see that we do a lot more than just monitoring! The support from members of our community increases our capacity to care for our preserves, both now and for the future. Thank you, Volunteer Land Stewards!
Newberry Woods Community Forest Advisory Team Update
In September of this year, GPC convened a Community Forest Advisory Team (CFAT) for the Newberry Woods Community Forest. Consisting of ten individuals from across sectors and interest groups, the CFAT provides input and feedback on the anticipated activities and management in Newberry Woods. The team has met monthly to discuss topics ranging from forest management to community engagement, and public access; next year the CFAT will assist in the creation of a five-year Strategic Plan for Newberry Woods Community Forest. Look for more updates in 2024!
