Avalonia is required to mark the boundaries of each new property. It takes some time and skill to post the marker on the right tree—not a tree in our neighbor’s back yard. This is an essential duty of a land trust to clearly inform visitors where our property lines end and the neighbors’ begins.
With the planned addition of over 2,000 acres in the next few years, we need a reliable team of qualified people who can post boundary signs to the documented borders of our preserves. You don’t need experience; we will teach you the basics. If you are handy with a GPS tracking device and/or a smartphone, you already have a good start. It’s like solving a puzzle and rewarding to see the job done right. Team members will need to be at least 18 years old, be comfortable off trail in the woods, carry a light pack of tools and materials, and be willing to work with one or two other team members.
