Volunteers Needed – Come Climb With NEST!
With summer well upon us, NEST is heading back into the field again for another round of surveys!
We are seeking volunteers to join our camp. Though, NEST welcomes people with climbing experience, experience is also unecessary. NEST is happy to train volunteers for all climbing and all skills needed for conducting red tree vole surveys. People who do not wish to climb are also welcome to join, as equally important ground support.
NEST asks that people who do not have their own transportation join us for at least 1-2 weeks. Rides and pick-ups near the camp location may be arranged.
For people who do have their own transportation, we can provide directions. Directions to camp sites will be kept with the in town contact person, who will be reachable at this email and at a phone number (to be posted on the website soon). We also ask all volunteers to check in with town support people, before hearing into the field. That way, camp can be re-supplied with food donations!
As always, NEST welcomes donations of gear and/or funds. Among the things on
are wishlist are: all kinds of camping gear, gps units, new or gently used climbing gear, shotline, caribeaners – steel and not, harnesses, a car battery, a solar panel, two way radios, and more! As NEST is a 501c3, all donations are tax deductible.
