Nature Stewards

Leave our world and enter their world.


Volunteer Nature Stewards are people who love the outdoors and want to learn, explore and share the natural landscape of Amherst with the community.  


With some training and support from members of the ACC you can explore and help to enhance Amherst’s ecosystems. Working individually or in small groups, you can collect data with your smartphone about wildlife and invasive species, monitor water quality, build bird boxes, or design your own research project – we host high school and university-level studies. Explore some of our current programs below. Consider getting involved in one or contact us about starting something new!
