The Meadowlands Conservation Trust (MCT) has a small, dedicated and hardworking staff. We have a land acquisition program that requires continuous maintenance of open space properties for the enjoyment and benefit of the public, as well as the protection of plant and wildlife species.

Some examples of the help you may provide includes:
* Clean Ups/Litter Control
* Trail Blazing
* Planting and Weeding
* Bird Box Construction and Placement
* Grant Writing Assistance
* Community Outreach
* Web Design
