Welcome to the Worcester County Conservation District

Volunteering

Volunteer as a conservation district supervisor or associate member and play an important role for the district in addressing conservation issues. These challenges range from climate change to loss of critical habitat to invasive species. Each of which threatens the health of our natural environment and our quality of life. Our supervisors provide valuable educational, technical and financial assistance to communities and landowners. With these programs, they can protect vital natural resources and implement responsible conservation practices.

There are additional volunteer opportunities the first week in May during our seedling sale’s packing week. We depend on volunteers to assist with receiving, sorting, and tagging of plant materials in preparation for packing day. Packing day is Thursday, May 4th, 2017 when at least 450 orders for 6 different pickup sites are packed in one day. The good part is we provide pizza for lunch!

Together with our WCCD Supervisors, volunteers and staff, and Jordan family farm who provide need space and infrastructure, we all contribute to the success of the Annual Seedling Sale!
