WANTED: Conservation Volunteer Hours!

Upham Woods is trying to reach 10,000 hours of conservation service into the land and they need you! Three different sessions are being offered via Zoom to support this mission. But don’t worry– it’s not your typical Zoom. Participants will meet via Zoom, then go into their own backgrounds and explore, and then share findings as a group.

Logging hours will help Upham Woods hit their goal and if you log 10 hours this summer, they will send you an Upham Woods camp t-shirt! Wahoo!!
