Sippican Lands Trust (SLT) sends a big thank you to all the great work of our volunteers in 2020.
SLT’s volunteers make a daily impact on our land conservation work. SLT’s Board of Directors spend numerous hours guiding, governing, fundraising, and getting their hands in the weeds (literally) by helping remove invasive plants on our properties and along our trails. SLT’s volunteer stewards spend many hours out in the field visiting and monitoring Sippican Lands Trust properties and identifying issues like overgrown Japanese knotweed along a trail or a pile of leaves at a place where it should not be. These volunteer stewards are our eyes and ears on the ground donating their time and talents to make sure that our properties and trails are in proper order.
SLT is grateful for the many, many volunteers making time on a Friday afternoon, Saturday morning or Sunday afternoon to prune trails, remove invasive plants, clear fallen trees and branches. SLT’s volunteers also help at walks and special events promoting and sharing the work of the Sippican Lands Trust.
Our SLT volunteers do this work for free carving out precious time from their busy schedules to advance the mission and work of SLT. I know there are numerous other tasks and special projects that our SLT volunteers do under the radar that many of us may never fully know the impact of their work.
So, a big thank you to all the SLT volunteers who made a difference in the mission and work of the SLT in 2020.
Jim Bride, Executive Director
