Becoming a Steward
To become a steward, volunteers must complete a 2-hour training with Inland Northwest Land Conservancy stewardship staff before they can steward a property. This training outlines the steward’s role as INLC ambassadors, monitoring and reporting protocols, and safety in the field.
Due to Covid-19-related gathering restrictions, the in-person trainings have been replaced by a virtual training that can be completed almost entirely online. See below for training materials.
Virtual Volunteer Land Steward Training Materials
In response to Covid-19 restrictions, the Volunteer Land Steward training has been adapted into a virtual format. This training has four required phases – the first three of those phases can be completed entirely online! Please complete the following steps to become an official Volunteer Land Steward!
