Engage, Understand, Preserve
There's always something to do at the Grist Mill, whether you're looking for volunteer opportunities or just looking to learn a little more about your area. If you are interested in helping to manage, restore, or preserve the land for present and future generations, Stewardship Days may be just the thing you're looking for. Join us every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month to help remove invasive species, trash, or collect seeds. You will get on-the-job training for these days.
If you're just looking to get out of the house and learn something new, take a hike with one of our seasoned volunteers or staff members. Take a look at the schedule to find the perfect time for you and your family!

Renovating the 1480 Property
Looking to learn about renovations? How about helping us out with our newly acquired 1480 Property? Join us on Friday mornings to help restore this old house. We will be using the lower level of this house as a Youth Education Center and installing a commercial kitchen, the upper-levels will be turned into an Airbnb. All skill levels are welcome.
Interested in learning about our local ecological habitats? Great! Workdays for land stewardship are important to us. If you would like to join us please check the dates and get some hands-on experience removing invasive species, collecting seeds, and overall helping to restore the land surrounding the Franklin Creek.
