Volunteer certificates can be redeemed for camping, a bicycle permit, native plants, a Conser- vancy gate card key, Conservan- cy membership, shuttle service to the Airport in the Sky, Con- servancy shirts, a Jeep Eco-Tour for 2 to 4 people and a spot on THE HIKE. Each certificate has a point value. The more hours accumu- lated the higher the value of the reward. The Conservancy relies heav- ily on its Islander and visitor volunteers to support its on- going restoration efforts. Volunteer projects range from office duties in Avalon to fence walking the middle of the Island to assisting with buffalo round- ups. And of course, the never ending removal of non-native plants will keep volunteers busy for years. In addition to day-long activi- ties, the Conservancy offers Vol- unteer Vacations. Participants spend five days volunteering on the Island. By day they are hard at work on a project; by night they camp at the Laura Stein volunteer camp outside of town. The deluxe campsite has tent cabins, composting toilets, warm water showers, open air cooking facilities and a beauti- ful view of the lee side of the Island. To learn more about volunteer projects, contact Darcee Guttilla at 510-2595, extension 110. Find Out What's on the Menu.
