This post is written by Evan Barrientos, one of our Hubbard Fellows. As part of his Fellowship, Evan is trying to help us build and improve upon our volunteer program. Please consider taking his short survey if you live in Nebraska or would be interested in coming from further away to volunteer with us (we can often provide housing for someone who wants to volunteer for weeks or months at at a time).
Ever wonder, “What’s something I could do in five minutes that would really help Nebraska’s prairies?” Wonder no longer. As part of my Hubbard Fellowship I’m trying to identify ways that the Nebraska Chapter of The Nature Conservancy can improve its volunteer opportunities. To do so, I’ve created a 10-question survey. DON’T CLOSE THIS WINDOW!
I know, I know, surveys are annoying, but this isn’t for some online store you bought soap from once. This one could really help our prairies and even you. How? It would help us better manage our prairies. The sad fact is, our land needs more stewardship than our staff could ever hope to accomplish alone. There will always be more invasive plants than we can control, more trees than we can cut, more flowers than we can collect seed from…
BUT, this means that there are tons of opportunities for people like YOU to get involved. Volunteers can play a vital role in helping us restore and manage healthy, diverse prairies, but only if we employ them well. We’d like to hear how you think we can do that. If you have ever volunteered for the Nebraska Chapter of The Nature Conservancy or even just live in Nebraska, please take this 10-question survey. This survey is completely voluntary and anonymous, so don’t hold back. By answering these ten questions you can help us conduct research to more effectively employ and satisfy our volunteers, and that would mean healthier, happier prairies.
