SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY: PLT SEEKS VOLUNTEERS for SIGN CONSTRUCTION

Phippsburg Land Trust trails display iconic routed-wood signs that have been hand-made by volunteers and the Trust’s Board members for decades. We now need new signs for some trails, and would like to continue the tradition of creating these green and white, rustic signs by hand. We are seeking volunteers with experience or interest in woodworking and sign construction to learn the process. This volunteer commitment would likely involve at least 2-3 hours of work on a weekly or biweekly basis until the needed signs are constructed. Any interested volunteers will be welcomed, and those with their own woodshop area and/or tools are especially encouraged to volunteer. Contact volunteer@phippsburglandtrust.org for more details or to set up a date and time for sign construction training.
