Dorothy Rider 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.
