2021 Lake Mansfield Summer Volunteer Workdays
Great Barrington Land Conservancy is caring for our lake and community through our Lake Mansfield Alliance project. Go to www.GBLand.org to take a look at all volunteer opportunities and activities.
Rather than our traditional May Lake Day event, a series of small group volunteer days will be held this year so we can care for our forest and lake while maintaining health protocols. Registration will be required to participate in order to help us insure small group sizes. Folks interested in volunteering must register by emailing info@GBLand.org. Be sure to include the dates you are hoping to help out. We are looking forward to working with you!
Volunteers should come with masks, work gloves, and water bottles. Sanitized tools will be provided. Social distancing will be maintained.
