Workday 101: Hosting a Great Experience for Nature Groupies

Online Only

Have you hosted a volunteer event that did not go as smoothly as you hoped? In the second of our spring 2024 webinar series, staff from Nature Groupie will share how to plan and host a successful stewardship workday with volunteers. We’ll cover everything from creating a welcoming event, how to structure the work, where to access tools, how to incorporate training, and (based on our survey data) what Nature Groupie volunteers value from outdoor volunteering. Bring your questions for a Q&A session at the end of the session.

About this Series: As the conservation field season begins, are you thinking about ways to engage volunteers in stewardship work this year? Join Malin Clyde and Charlotte Thompson of Extension’s Nature Groupie project for a spring webinar series focused on working effectively with stewardship volunteers. We’ll tackle recruitment, workday best practices and bigger questions about the value and importance of working with volunteers – for your organization and for society. You’ll gain tips for getting the most out of posting on the Nature Groupie website, help for hosting a successful volunteer workday, and practical resources to use in your work – all based on lessons learned from 10 years of the Nature Groupie project at UNH Extension. Got questions about volunteers? Bring ‘em on, as we’ll have time for Q&A at each session.
