Local businesses play a crucial role in shaping the future of our community. By actively participating in conservation efforts, businesses can contribute to the preservation of our environment while building a positive reputation within the community. Together, we can make a lasting impact on Northwest Arkansas and create a sustainable future.
Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Ozarks by exploring our public preserves located across Benton and Washington Counties. Experience firsthand the stunning landscapes that we are working tirelessly to protect. If your corporate team would like a guided tour of one of our public preserves, contact Evan Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Make a direct impact by taking action and volunteering with the Land Trust! Join us for hands-on conservation activities, such as trail maintenance, habitat restoration, and invasive species removal. These activities provide a meaningful team-building experience while helping to protect and preserve our corner of the Ozarks.
GROUP VOLUNTEER OPTIONS:
Litter Pickup- This can be conducted at a wide range of Land Trust preserves (in both Washington and Benton County). Liter pickups are great for groups larger than 15 or more. The ability to see the positive environmental impact in the moment can be inspiring!
Kessler Classroom Service Projects- Located at the Ozark Smokehouse in Fayetteville. The Kessler Classroom is the educational hub for the Land Trust. We host over 1900 students annually for field trips at this site. We will be conducting a multitude of structural improvements to the site in 2023. Having a volunteer group help install new benches, signs, and exhibits would be a great help to us!
Bio Blitz- A bio blitz is an event that focuses on finding and identifying as many species as possible in a specific area over a short period of time. This type of volunteer event does not require extensive knowledge of species id (there are some awesome species id apps out there). This data is important in creating the land management plans for our preserves.
Invasive Species Removal- We are constantly battling invasive species on our preserves all year long! All ages and physical abilities would be able to participate as well!
