No matter how many acres MRT owns or manages, no matter how many grant awards we receive - our organization is really measured by the people whose lives we touch. Volunteers are the heart and soul of the land trust movement. Without the dedication and devotion of people like you - the volunteers - the preservation and protection of this nation's natural resources could not happen. We need your help right here in southern California. Please help us in our efforts to preserve the beautiful Santa Monica Moutains. As a MRT volunteer, you will experience nature and conservation firsthand. You will meet people who share your interests and passion, and you WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Join us - for an hour, a day, a week, a lifetime.
