The Downeast Coastal Conservancy (DCC) and the Downeast Salmon Federation (DSF) are seeking volunteers to help with property stewardship and monitoring!

On Saturday, June 22 we will be holding a workshop for anyone interested in volunteering with either organization as a volunteer steward at 9:30am in Whitneyville at the Hillgrove Community Hall.

This workshop will focus on property monitoring and other stewardship related volunteer opportunities. Part of the training will be held inside discussing the importance of monitoring, what is involved in a monitoring visit, and other types of stewardship work the organizations do. Following the discussion, we will head out to the Machias River Preserve for a more practical discussion about monitoring and stewardship and go through a monitoring visit in the field.

If you would like to help DCC or DSF monitor one of our many preserves, or if you already volunteer to monitor but would like a refresher, or if you are interested in volunteering in other ways, this is for you! There is no cost and snacks and coffee will be provided! Please contact DCC’s Stewardship Director, Kyle Winslow, at 207-255-4500, or email him at, for more details.

Downeast Salmon Federation’s 62 properties conserve 3,835 acres of forests, wetlands and 30 miles of rivers and streams including preserves at Sprague’s Falls in Cherryfield, and Saco Falls Town Park and the Pleasant River Community Forest in Columbia Falls.
