Committee service is another option.  This work is less involved but equally important. Committees meet approximately every other month but members also arrange with the chair to accomplish necessary tasks at other times.

Current Committees at this time are:

  • Habitat Restoration - identify and implement projects that restore or enhance ecological functioning to degraded areas in the Sebasticook watershed.

  • Stewardship - helps manage SRLT community lands by working on trails & preserves monthly.  Members attend as their schedule allows. The committee makes recommendations to the Board on land management, and potential acquisitions.

  • Outreach & Development - helps educate the community about conservation and the natural world.  Facilitates public relations and recruits and maintains membership and supporters

The Board of Directors share their talents and skills to help protect, steward and advocate on behalf of open space in the Sebasticook watershed.  You will help further our mission by planning, monitoring and strengthening programs and by ensuring financial resources are available to enhance our standing in the community.  Directors serve a three-year term with a possibility to renew their service for another two terms 

 

Responsibilities include:

  • Duty of Care – Pay attention to our activities and operations by attending monthly board meetings.  Attendance can be either live or online.  Board members also serve on committees and support our events.

  • Duty of Loyalty – Put the interest of the organization before personal or professional interests when making decisions.

  • Duty of Compliance – Comply with applicable federal, state and local laws and adhere to our by-laws.
