Spring Property Monitoring Visits
Oceanside Conservation Trust is preparing for our annual monitoring visits to the properties which we protect, and we would like to have you come with us if you wish. The board members and stewards will be walking each property as we do every year. Whether it is a property on which we hold a conservation easement or one which we own in fee, we check the boundaries and document and photograph any changes. We of course pay particular attention to issues which are controlled by the easements.
Because these are special properties, especially to folks on each of the islands, it is also a pleasure to participate in these visits. The board members and stewards would be happy to share the experience so you can see how we do our work.
