Volunteers are vital to nonprofits and the Southeast Land Trust is no exception. We rely on volunteers to help with events such as the Fall Foliage Fundraiser, stuffing envelopes, serving on committees, annual monitoring of our conservation easements, and trail building and maintenance on land we own. Our volunteers are as diverse as the land we protect, bringing to the Land Trust a multitude of talents, abilities, interests and experiences, all of which help us further our work protecting and stewarding land in the region for today and future generations.
We are grateful to have Amy Farnham as an Easement Stewardship Volunteer. A native of Exeter, Amy enjoyed growing up with lots of open land in the surrounding community. She remembers fewer businesses lining Route 108 in Stratham and when there was no need for a stop sign in downtown Exeter. After 15 years of living and experiencing other locations in the U.S. she came back to Exeter and remembers the shock of seeing how much development had occurred while she was gone. And while she understood the need for some change to keep the towns vibrant she also knew the importance of keeping some land undeveloped for other uses such as farming and outdoor recreation.Read more: Stewarding the Land: A Volunteer Profile
