Stewardship Weekends

Fall Stewardship Weekend

November 20-22, 2020

Westwind invites you to spend a weekend on the beach as a volunteer! Stewardship weekends include site work, cleaning, and conservation. Children must be accompanied by parents or guardians.

Participation in Stewardship weekends is by reservation only and on a first-come, first-serve basis, limited at 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.
