Share Your Time and Talent

Volunteer with our land trust

Do you have a special connection to one of our trails or properties? Are you passionate about protecting Canton’s natural resources and wildlife habitats?

We need your help.

The Canton Land Conservation Trust (CLCT) is a volunteer-run organization, with only one part-time paid staff member. To fulfill our mission, we rely almost entirely on the time and talent of volunteers.

You don’t need to be a member of CLCT to volunteer with us. We welcome everyone – including families with kids and teens.
