Over the past few weeks, Great Peninsula Conservancy started a new tradition: meeting up on Fridays to introduce the new staff to community partners and members and visit the GPC preserves across our working region.
Our new AmeriCorps members, Sierra Kross and Janessa Hollmaier, are getting out on the land to think about possible use of GPC lands as future Land Labs sites. As this program is developed, the team is looking for preserves that are in proximity to public schools, are easily accessible, and provide rich learning opportunities for hands-on science projects in conjunction with core curriculum standards.
Meanwhile the new members of the stewardship team, Adrian Wolf and Micaela Petrini, will be visiting all of GPC’s preserves to get to know each and every one them. They’ll meet the neighbors and volunteer stewards, monitor the properties, and address any restoration work that needs to be done.
