Posted March 29, 2011, at 1:25 p.m.

CAMDEN — Coastal Mountains Land Trust is recruiting volunteers to become involved with its active stewardship, outreach and office programs. Volunteers are needed to serve in the field as well as at the office as preserve monitors, trail managers and office docents. More specifically,

given a number of new acquisitions in Belfast, Northport, Searsport, Stockton Springs and Prospect, the land trust wants to increase the number of active volunteers from these towns.

New volunteer orientation sessions will be held 4-5:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 5, at Belfast Free Library in Belfast, and 5-6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 12, at the land trust office in Camden. At both sessions, stewardship director Ian Stewart will provide an overview of the land trust’s programs and conservation properties as well as a summary of the numerous volunteer positions that the land trust currently is seeking to fill.

Register to attend by calling the land trust at 236-7091.

For those who want to jump right in, the land trust will be hosting an invasive plant removal work party at the Ducktrap River Preserve in Lincolnville from 9 a.m. to noon Sunday, April 10, and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays through April 13.
