In 2018 in response to a growing need for more consistent attention to each of it's five open-to-the-public nature preserves, ECWA launched it's Preserve Stewards Program.
ECWA's preserve steward program is an opportunity for volunteers to help with the day to day maintenance and monitoring of a preserve that they live near or regularly visit. Preserve stewards are responsible for removing trash, keeping preserve signs and kiosks up-to-date, restocking dog waste bags, and coordinating workdays. Stewardship Coordinator, Donna Myers, trains and supports each steward.
We’re always looking for more stewards. So, if you live near or frequent the Beaver Marsh, 17-Acre Wood, Pearl Mill, or Glennstone Nature Preserve and are interested in becoming a preserve steward, please contact us. And the next time you’re on a preserve and see one of those dedicated preserve stewards—they’ll be wearing light blue ECWA shirts—please tell them thank you!
