Volunteer Training

Training

Want to increase your skill set? We offer training sessions and workshops to volunteers each year.

BridgeBuilding

Each year, we partner with Trail clubs and government agencies to conduct workshops for current and new volunteers. Workshops cover basic maintenance, sawyer certification, rock work, winch skills, wilderness first aid, environmental monitoring and more.

South Mountain Partnership Water Workshop



This Water Workshop is part of the South Mountain Speaker Series  consisting of 4 to 6 lectures over the course of the year. The South Mountain Speakers Series, as a revival of the historic Michaux Lectures, strives to educate and engage the public on contemporary conservation topics and challenges to create a citizenry that values and supports the preservation of the rich natural, cultural, agricultural, and recreational resources of the South Mountain region. 

The date for this event has yet to be determined, but will take place early in 2019 near Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Visit the South Mountain Partnership website for regular updates.
