Peter's Woods Volunteers Needed

Two sets of Volunteers are required for stewardship during a 2-week period from May to November to carry out the ongoing upkeep of Peter’s Woods. This duty has taken place since 1978 when Willow Beach Field Naturalists, recognizing the beauty and value of such an undisturbed area devoted both time and capital to the establishment of this nature reserve. Volunteers visit "the Woods" twice in their 2 weeks and monitor using a simple checklist. It's a wonderful excuse for a walk there!
