Stewardship Opportunities

If you are interested in helping with the stewardship at a favorite property please contact Bob Easter at We can always use extra eyes and hands on the land, this includes removing invasive species, monitoring the site for vegetation and animal activity, trail maintenance, site clean up, or anything that you think you can contribute to the NICHES community.
