Pool Wildlife Sanctuary Maintenance Volunteer

Wildlands Conservancy is currently seeking Maintenance Volunteers for our Pool Wildlife Sanctuary, located in Emmaus, PA. The Sanctuary includes 77 acres of woodlands and open space, plus several buildings. The main office of Wildlands Conservancy is located in a roughly 200 year-old farmhouse on the Sanctuary, as is a much newer education center, a 200 year-old barn, and several smaller buildings and structures. We are seeking skilled, experienced volunteers to help us with small-to-medium sized repairs and maintenance activities. The ability to complete very basic power tool and farm equipment maintenance would be helpful. The total weekly/monthly hours volunteered are optional, but commitment to a regular schedule is requested.

Habitat Restoration at Thomas Darling Preserve | April 22-23

This Earth Day weekend, you can help Wildlands make critical progress towards restoring habitat for the golden-winged warbler at our 1,300-acre Thomas Darling Preserve in the Poconos. Over the course of these 2 days we have a goal of planting up to 3,000 trees. This work will effectively re-establish early successional forest in the area, which serves as primary breeding habitat for this threatened neotropical species. Please come prepared to work! We will provide shovels and gloves. Long pants and sleeves recommended, as well as sturdy work shoes. Snacks and water will be provided, but please plan to bring a picnic lunch and additional water to last the day. Join us anytime between 10am- 4pm for one or both of these volunteer days-your contribution is essential to our success!
