Become a Steward

Falmouth Land Trust stewards are volunteers who want to get to know a particular FLT property better.  As a steward, you would walk the property at least once a year to ensure that it remains in good condition.  If your chosen property is a new acquisition or easement, you would help the trust to establish baseline records on the condition of the land with photographs, maps, and written descriptions. Stewards may also organize trail construction/maintenance days and participate in land trust events, such as a public walk, on the property.

For more information about stewardship opportunities, please contact the FLT at

Create / Maintain Trails

The trust periodically needs help blazing trails or clearing brush – this is a great way to get some outdoor exercise.  No experience is needed plus kids and dogs are usually welcome.

To help with any FLT property, please contact FLT at

To join the Falmouth Conservation Corps, which does trail work on town lands and FLT properties, please contact the Town’s Open Space Ombudsman, Bob Shafto.

Lead a Walk

If you want to share your appreciation and/or knowledge about nature with others, consider leading an FLT walk on a Trust property.  Whether you like to point out birds, flowers, trees, human artifacts, etc. or just really admire a particular property, leading a walk is a great way to contribute to the work of the Trust.

If you are interesting in leading one of the upcoming walks, please contact the FLT at

Plan an Event

Do you have a marketing, fund raising or public relations background?  Can you throw a great party?  If you answered yes to either of those questions, consider helping the Trust with outreach, fundraising, and event planning.

Please contact the Trust at for more information.
