The Sippican Lands Trust has an active Stewardship Program of volunteers, including locals students, who monitor, maintain, photograph and report on Trust wildlife refuges on a seasonal basis. Stewards work to oversee the maintenance of natural processes for preserving native ecosystems and to support species that are native to the area, and their surveys enable us to monitor general conditions as well as identify any situations that require attention.
According to the Land Trust Alliance Standards and Practices, “the land trust marks its boundaries and regularly monitors its properties for potential management problems (such as trespass, misuse or overuse, vandalism or safety hazards) and takes action to recify such problems.”
