How You Can Make A Difference

We're so happy you're here! Ambassadors are a passionate group of dedicated volunteers who use their voice to help spread awareness about the work we're doing. They engage our visitors, call our supporters, deliver our annual Passport to Nature booklets, tag us on social media, and more!

As an Ambassador, you'll have the ability to share your passion for a healthy environment with like-minded humans, and help expand the land trust movement in our region. By working together, Ambassadors help us build a community of supporters to drive change at a local level

How to Prepare

Familiarizing yourself with The Conservancy will help you feel more comfortable & confident when talking to the public about the work we do and why protecting land matters. By no means do you need to be an expert on everything we do, but knowing this information is crucial to your role as an Ambassador and training must be completed before taking on any Ambassador roles.

    A Campaign You Should Know About

    Corridors Campaign

    The Corridors Campaign aims to build corridors of connected wilderness throughout the Black River Wildlands and the Carden Alvar.

    With increasing development pressure in our area, we have a goal to raise $1.4M to help move forward acquisition and protection efforts. We still need to raise $500K and every donation is important and moves us closer to our land conservation objectives.
