Stewardship Weekend

2024 Spring Stewardship Weekend

March 8-10, 2024

Registration opens February, 2024!

Westwind invites you to spend a weekend on the beach as a volunteer! Stewardship weekends include site work, cleaning, and conservation. Participants under 18 must be accompanied by parents or guardians, and all participants must be over the age of 14.

Participation in Stewardship weekends is by reservation only and on a first-come, first-serve basis. Meals, beds, tools, and instruction are provided. Please note you will be sharing lodging with others. Bring your own sleeping bag, pillow, and towel. For those who can, Westwind asks for a voluntary $75 donation per person to cover food, lodging, and extra cleaning requirements.
