North County Land Trust manages 7 public access conservation areas with beautiful walking trails that are open to the public in Fitchburg, Gardner, Ashburnham, Lunenburg, Hubbardston, Princeton, and Templeton.
We are a member supported conservation organization and rely on the time and talents of our volunteer network. Please consider joining with like-minded individuals, organizations, and businesses who support our mission. Get started today!

Trail Steward Volunteer
Participate in a trail work-day or join a stewardship committee. This could be a Trail Monitor at one of our conservation areas or helping us plow the parking areas at conservation areas. Look for Trail Work Days advertised on our Facebook Page. Learn about Land Stewardship and consider volunteering to steward one of our Conservation Areas.
Naturalist and Hike Leader
Do you enjoy sharing your knowledge and enthusiasm for the natural world? Consider leading a nature walk on one of our conservation areas.
We need help with making calls, mailings, and filing. Computer skills are helpful but not required.
Special Events Volunteer
Help us plan and promote our guided nature walks, Annual Meeting, Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast, Holiday Open House, and other special events.
Our membership loves to see pictures from our conservation areas. If you take a beautiful photo on one of our conservation areas, please send it to us.
Let us know your interests and availability
We are so appreciative of all the work that NCLT’s volunteers do for our regional land trust! These volunteers help in a number of ways by increasing our capacity in the work we do for land conservation. To show our great appreciation, we are going to be featuring some of our volunteers who do work in a diverse number of areas.
Alan came to us as a recently retired resident of Townsend. His love of the outdoors and desire to give back was a perfect fit for the role of Trail Monitor. Follow the link to learn more about one of NCLT’s newest volunteers.
