Sligo Stewards

Sligo Stewards hold workdays and plan projects in 19 different sections of the eight-mile Sligo Creek plus its tributaries. There are currently several openings for new stewards. As a new steward, you will play an important role in protecting and strengthening the creek and our communities, with as much support as you need from current stewards. Please indicate your interest via the Contact form.
