Volunteers are a vital component of our Land Stewardship Program. Volunteer Land Stewards actively care for each of the 230+ properties that are owned or managed by the Bruce Trail Conservancy. As the Bruce Trail Conservancy acquires more land in our efforts to establish a permanent and secure route for the Bruce Trail, our Land Stewardship needs grow.
Land Stewards complete this online form to record the results of their visits to the BTC-managed property in their care.
Land Steward Positions
Land Stewards are the caretakers of each Bruce Trail Conservancy property/nature reserve. Land Stewards:
- visit their assigned property at least twice a year,
- complete annual reports on the conditions of the property,
- provide input into the stewardship plans, and
- help to organize and carry out stewardship activities such as tree planting, garbage removal, and installing signs and fences.
Land Steward Directors:
- Each Bruce Trail Club has one Land Steward Director to coordinate the work of the Land Stewards in that Club.
Land Stewardship Staff:
Two Land Stewardship Coordinators & Ecologists on staff at the BTC coordinate the Land Stewardship Program: Adam Brylowski (firstname.lastname@example.org; ext. 226) and Brian Popelier (email@example.com; ext. 230)
