Seasoned Volunteers Stay the Course in 2021

We didn’t have our traditional public stewardship days in 2021, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but our dedicated volunteers were very active throughout the year! Through limited-capacity Weed Warrior Wednesdays and the work of our Seasoned Stewards, we accomplished hands-on work at many of our habitat reserves, from removing invasive species to planting trees. Our designated Site Stewards also kept NCLC going strong by regularly visiting and monitoring our properties along the Oregon Coast. Having their eyes and ears on the land is a big help to our stewardship team. Meanwhile, we also had committed volunteers stuffing envelopes, proofing publications, managing databases and doing other tasks that helped us with day-to-day operations. Learn about volunteering for NCLC.

Thank you to all of our 2021 volunteers.

      • With the help of our volunteers, we planted more than 3,000 plugs of edible thistle and dune tansy—wonderful native plants—on the Clatsop plains in Spring 2021.
      • Volunteers Vaughn Martin and Jeff Roehm remove invasive ivy at Blind Slough. Both are longtime regular volunteers and NCLC Site Stewards.
      • Volunteers participate in a work party at Circle Creek Conservation Center. Read more about the Circle Creek cleanup crew.
