Community Stewards

We are currently seeking Community Stewards! Volunteer Community Stewards are essential to caring for the preserves and trails entrusted to Harpswell Heritage Land Trust (HHLT). Community Stewards work closely with HHLT staff to ensure that conservation land and trails are safe, well-maintained, and inviting places for visitors. They are matched with a property, which may be land owned by HHLT or a trail on a conservation easement that allows public access. Community Stewards visit the land on their own time to check trail and/or preserve conditions, perform trail work, pick up trash, fill map boxes, and document their activities. For more information, you can read the job description here. To express interest in becoming a steward, please fill out the google form linked below. Someone from our staff will be in touch with you soon.
