Stewardship Weekends

Fall Stewardship Weekend

November 8-10, 2019

Westwind invites you to volunteer service weekends that include site work, cleaning, and conservation. Children must be accompanied by parents or guardians, and ready to work!

Participation in Stewardship weekends is by reservation only and on a first-come, first-served basis (limit is 60 participants). Meals, beds, tools and instruction are provided.  Bring your own sleeping bag, pillow and towel. For those who can, Westwind asks for a voluntary $50 donation per person to cover food costs.
