Natural Area Volunteers
Sponsored by Friends of Mansfield Parks, NAV is a volunteer corps supervised by Mansfield Parks and Recreation and the Parks Advisory Committee. Stewards and Co-stewards are assigned to a particular park/preserve, visit it frequently, know its management plan, and work with staff to care for it. Workday Volunteers attend workdays as their schedules permit, helping with supervised projects such as seed collecting, brush clearing, trail blazing, etc. Wildlife Monitors are trained to survey for interesting plants and animals. Service groups are welcome, as are children over 8 when accompanied by an adult.
