The Pascommuck Conservation Trust is in need of volunteers of every skill level and ability for whatever time and energy you are willing to commit. We are an entirely volunteer organization, and truly appreciate all help that people can give. Perhaps you enjoy working outside in nature, meeting and talking to new people, writing about the environment and your community. Or you have a particular skill you enjoy using in art, woodworking, computers, finance, etc. Whatever your skill set we welcome you.
We are seeking volunteers on a number of different levels. The PCT is recruiting new Board of Director members who are willing to commit to one meeting a month along with other responsibilities commensurate with their skills and their personal level of dedication. Board members vote on issues such as property acquisition, property maintenance, fundraising, etc. For anyone with financial skills and interests we are also in need of a new Treasurer.
There are a number of PCT “Special Project Volunteers” who are involved on a less time consuming but equally vital role within the organization. These non-voting members volunteer for projects they enjoy within a time frame that fits in their own personal schedule. Their tasks range from property clean up to sign making to writing thank you notes and anything in between.
We have prepared a maintenance schedule for our properties listing the maintenance tasks for each, the time of year the task needs to be done, and the estimated time to complete each task.
We are looking for people or groups of people to sign up for each task for next summer. If you sign up, you have two weeks in which to find the time to complete the task. You can sign up for one task, the same task for the entire season, or multiple tasks.
To sign up, pick the task(s) you would like to volunteer for, check the schedule online to make certain no one has already volunteered for that task, and email board member Linda Bush at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, email address and the task(s) you are volunteering for.

Your skill level is not as important as your commitment. John Bator, Trust President, plans to meet with all volunteers at each property next spring before the start of the season to discuss what needs to be done, and answer any questions you may have.
Thank you for your efforts in helping to maintain Easthampton’s special places!

PCT is always seeking volunteers interested in supporting our mission. Volunteers are the heart and soul of the organization. None of our accomplishments over the past quarter century would have happened, had it not been for the efforts of many dedicated volunteers from the community. Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, see new places and feel good about making a difference in the community. There are a wide range of volunteer activities, available on a one-time or long-term basis, from computer work to trail maintenance.
People interested in volunteering on a one-time basis are always welcome at our workdays, listed on our Calendar. Long-term volunteers can join one of our committees, such as the Stewardship Committee, which works to monitor our conservation properties, the Fundraising Committee, the Properties Maintenance Committee or the Membership Committee, which works on our membership strategy.
