The Wareham Land Trust (WLT) is holding a free information and training session for anyone interested in becoming a volunteer land steward on Saturday, May 14 from 10:00AM - 12:00PM. The training will take place at the WLT office located at 219 Main St., (next door to The Jug Shop). 

Come and find out what it means to be a land steward and the importance of land stewardship to the town of Wareham. Land trust President Kevin Bartsch and Stewardship Coordinator, Len Boutin will explain what an annual monitoring of a protected property entails. There might even be a land trust property in your neighborhood that needs a steward.  

The Wareham Land Trust is dedicated to the protection of Wareham’s open space and natural resources to benefit present and future generations and depends on volunteer land stewards to monitor 31 properties totaling over 600 acres of land. Conserving open space protects wildlife habitat, enhances wetland and estuary ecosystems, helps to safeguard our watershed and provides scenic vistas and natural areas for passive recreation. To read more about the Wareham Land Trust, please visit their website at
