When I was working on my book about environmental volunteers, many of the organizations interested in participating where land trusts. During the course of that work, I visited with volunteers who worked with land trust large and small, rural and suburban. These kinds of organizations, dedicated to protecting and preserving the land, are everywhere and are often made up completely of volunteers. Even if they do have some paid staff, they all rely on volunteers in many ways, to help them achieve a wide variety of goals. This article from the Shreveport Times tells a great story about the Finger Lakes Land Trust, an organization which has been doing great work in upstate New York for 25 years.
