On Tuesday, April 12 at 10 a.m., WLT’s staff will host an open house for both new and current volunteers at its Bedford Hills headquarters. 

“Small acts of service have a lasting impact on the natural environment that protects all of us,” said Kara H. Whelan, Vice President of WLT. “We are grateful to have year-round support from dozens of compassionate and enthusiastic friends who support big and small projects that result in the permanent protection of our shared natural resources.” 

The orientation is an opportunity to join WLT’s roster of volunteers who help monitor and maintain trails, coordinate and co-lead outings, photograph preserved land, garden at Sugar Hill Farm to grow food for local food banks, assist with mailings and office support, and much more. 

The open house will serve as both an orientation to WLT as well as a kick-off to the 2016 calendar of schedule volunteer sessions. Attendees are encouraged to come dressed to participate in garden-based activity. Refreshments will be served. Please RSVP to Grace Buck, Assistant Development Director at 914-234-6992 ext. 23.
