Volunteers are the lifeblood of the Waltham Land Trust. From outdoor clean-ups across the city to stuffing envelopes with our annual mailers, the land trust is dependent on the donated time and effort of our volunteers.
There are many ways to get involved - whether you want to 'try it out' for an hour or two, or you're looking to jump into a months-long project. Every minute is appreciated and every second your work has an impact.
Interested in helping to maintain trails in Waltham? The Waltham Land Trust is looking for folks who would like to volunteer to be the “eyes and ears” of:
- the Western Greenway Trail
- Prospect Hill Park trails
- the Mass Central Rail Trail
- pathways along the Charles River
- trails in Beaver Brook North and Historic reservations
- Smith Point, shoreline, Graverson Playground and wetlands of Hardy Pond
As a WLT steward, you can be as involved as you want to be, from just reporting on trail conditions online, to picking up trash (we provide bags and gloves), to removing invasive plants and helping keep the trail sustainable. You pick the place you want to "patrol" from the above locations. Once you've received the training and supplies needed, go out as often as you are able and have fun!
Additional information, including training materials and the reporting forms for current stewards can be found on the Trail Stewards page.
