BRCC members supported Earth Day at the Mount Major Trailhead on April 24, 2019.  BRCC members Nanci Mitchell and Russ Wilder supplied hot coffee and snacks for the volunteers cleaning up trail litter.  They also greated hikers in the parking lot and provided information about hiking conditions.

In 2018, LRCT hosted six LRCC-LRCT members for 22.5 weeks from May through October. Members worked on a variety of projects including maintaining LRCT’s 95+ miles of trails, acting as island and property hosts at LRCT’s conservation properties, leading guided excursions and other educational and outreach opportunities. They worked on special property management projects constructing bridges and kiosks, updating property boundary markings and signage, monitoring conservation easements, removing invasive terrestrial plants, and conducting property research and property record keeping projects. LRCC-LRCT members received training in land conservation methods, conservation and recreational land management, and education and outreach.
