Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are an engaging group of friends and neighbors who assist staff by monitoring properties, participating in work parties and special events, and sometimes organizing and leading educational field trips.

The Oak Team  The Acorn Army wants YOU! Join current volunteers who enjoy visiting and working on Cady Mountain Preserve on a regular basis to keep up momentum on this important restoration project. Please email Tanja Williamson at tanjaw@sjclandbank.org for more information.

Salish Seed Project  Assist in seed collection, sowing, nursery care, and replanting native plants for habitat restoration. This project is new in 2014 and headed for exciting places of community involvement and enrichment.

Youth Projects  We encourage and welcome the engagement of youth volunteers who are interested in learning new ways to be good stewards of our public lands.

Clean-ups  One-day clean-up events are held several times a year with our partners, and we are often gathering individuals who have a morning or afternoon to spare on any island to gather tons (actually tons!) of creosote, trash, and debris. Join us for a satisfying way to spend a day caring for your public lands.

Other Ways You Can Help  Volunteers monitor preserves by visiting a Land Bank preserve on a regular basis. They have the opportunity to become intimately familiar with a particular preserve. Work party volunteers help projects such as pulling noxious weeds and reforestation. Office volunteers provide administrative and outreach support, ie. helping with mailings or database updates.
