Every spring volunteers come together at one of the department's two Green Mountain Conservation Camps for a weekend in May to donate their time to spruce up the camps for the summer season. Work is needed each spring on a variety of projects, including landscaping, painting, general repairs and construction, cleaning, plumbing, and cutting firewood.
The Green Mountain Conservation Camps began in 1966. Each summer, the camps provide boys and girls 12 -16 years of age the opportunity to gain an appreciation for Vermont's fish and wildlife through a dynamic “hands-on” curriculum. With the help of volunteers each spring, these Conservation Camps are made ready for the young campers.
People of all abilities are welcome to volunteer. The Fish & Wildlife Department provides free meals and lodging for anyone wishing to participate. The camps are located at Buck Lake, in Woodbury and Lake Bomoseen, in Castleton.
May 2014 Work Weekend Dates:
May 17th and 18th: Edward F. Kehoe Camp in Castleton
May 24th and 25th: Buck Lake Camp in Woodbury
