Are you an Upper Valley Business Owner?

Do you lead a team of colleagues in your workplace?

An employer-sponsored service day is a great way for your group to contribute high impact volunteerism for the landscape we all love.

UVLT’s new Corporate Volunteer Program focuses recruitment around program design that builds skills, encourages fun, and generates outcomes that really matter.  UVLT currently manages and maintains over 500 conserved properties in the Upper Valley region of Vermont and New Hampshire. Corporate service volunteers participate in our conservation efforts and land stewardship tasks, out on the land, in our office, or in shop space.

Your company’s personalized event(s) can be designed to include any of the following opportunities: guided hikes, team building activities, trail maintenance projects, flora and fauna inventories, invasive plant management, wildlife habitat improvement, or we can host employee appreciation events in conjunction with a service project. UVLT’s Stewardship Team will work with your company to create a memorable experience built around your interests, abilities and goals.
