Volunteer Opportunity in Duke Forest! IC’s JPIC “Care for Creation” (Green Team) is encouraging parishioners to join a dedicated team of volunteers helping to monitor and protect the Duke Forest in this inaugural year of the Forest Stewards Program! The Forest Stewards Program helps to better protect and steward this dynamic 7,100-acre land base. Forest Stewards are volunteers who commit with a teammate to walking a designated hiking route twice per month, monitoring and tracking conditions on-the-ground, and reporting what they find to Duke Forest staff. Forest Stewards help to ensure the long-term sustainability of the Duke Forest as an asset for research, teaching, and community outreach. This is a great opportunity to care for our environment in the spirit of Laudato Si. For more information, click on the link below.
