You are ready to be a conservation leader! This in-depth training will prepare you with the information, tools, and understanding that you need to join our Volunteer Land Stewards crew and adopt McKenzie River Trust protected property to help care for!

This training will take place in the field and outdoor classroom and include information about McKenzie River Trusts conservation approach, native and non-native plant species, how to map and monitor conservation information on your phone or tablet, and more!

- Taking photos annually to help build the long-term visual story of your adopted property

- Habitat projects including removing invasive plants
