Dry Stone Conservancy

Vounteer for the Dry Stone Conservancy

We are always in need of volunteers! From rebuilding walls or serving lunch, to helping out with paperwork, there is sure to be a job for everyone!

Each spring and fall we have several Volunteer Work Days to choose from. If you have attended a DSC workshop, this is a chance for you to practice your skills under the guidance of one of our trained instructors. The best part is it's FREE! You get to contribute to your community and preserve an important part of Kentucky’s cultural heritage. If you have never taken a workshop, you can help prepare lunches for our DSC workshops, or assist our staff at a special event.

Please sign up to help the Dry Stone Conservancy achieve its mission of preserving dry-laid stone structures and promoting the ancient craft of dry stone masonry.
