About the Event

Have you ever been frustrated by volunteer turnout? Or wondered how to attract new or different types of volunteers to your stewardship workday? At this last of our spring series, we’ll offer ways you can get the most out of posting on the Nature Groupie website. We’ll share tips for reaching new volunteers, how to target your event to attract a new audience, how to write a great event description (what works and what doesn’t), and other best practices for recruiting volunteers to your workday or training. We’ll share examples and tips based on 10 years of operating the Nature Groupie website – we've seen what works, and we’ll share it with you! 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.
