Volunteer

In any effective community-based nonprofit, volunteers are the lifeblood of the organization. From serving on the Board or an advisory committee, to maintaining a trail or coordinating a special event, we couldn’t perform our work without our band of merry volunteers. Volunteering is also a great way to experience the lands we’ve conserved and make new friends, while performing a vital service that benefits the land and community. Learn more about becoming a volunteer and upcoming opportunities. Sign up to stay informed by filling out the form below.


Volunteer Work Parties

Throughout the year, rain or shine, we hold volunteer work parties on conserved lands. From pulling invasive weeds or planting native plants to clearing trails, volunteering at a work party is an opportunity to get out on the land and help get some important and much appreciated work done. Please note, as much as we love our furry friends at SOLC, dogs are not allowed on any of the volunteer events unless specified.

Become a volunteer for Loving the Land
April 23-27, 2018

Do you love Southern Oregon's natural history? Do you love working with kids? We would LOVE for you to volunteer with us! We need facilitators for our 4th and 5th grade outdoor education program that runs every day during the last week of April every year in Ashland at the Oredson-Todd Woods. Facilitators host investigative and exploratory field study stations where students learn about geology, stream invertebrates and forest ecology. Students will also have a picnic lunch and a short hike to a waterfall. All facilitators will be provided with instructional materials in advance.

If you would like to share the joy of the outdoors with young people, call or email us to request to be contacted before the next program launches:

PC & Paper Office Volunteer
Ongoing throughout the year

Every community non-profit needs a team behind the scenes to make their mission come to life. Here at SOLC, volunteers in the field and in the office are critical to our success. We welcome volunteers to join our administrative team on an as-needed or regular basis. Lend a hand once a year, once a week or anything in-between.

Choice of tasks include: data entry, online calendar posting, make phone calls, organize outreach materials and supplies, organize photos, proofreading, and help with mailings including letter stuffing. Some tasks can be done at home or in our Ashland office.

Contact Teresa Fernandez to chat about becoming an SOLC Office Volunteer at teresa@landconserve.org or 541-482-3069 ext. 107.


Volunteer Documentarians
Ongoing throughout the year

RRP_IslandMonitor-StewardVisti_8.8.17_MikePotts (1).jpg

We're looking for folks who love taking photos, shooting video, or doing a little research and writing - or all three! We'll connect you with the land during an event, hike, tour or project visit at a special, conserved property where you'll have the opportunity to document what you see and experience. We welcome video, photo and writing pieces about topics of local natural history. We'd love to share your work on our website and with our supporters and followers on social media and at public events.

It's a fun and casual way to practice what you love and help promote conserving land for people, for nature, forever.

If you have an interest in being a volunteer documentarian, please contact Teresa at 541-482-3069 Ext 107 or email her at teresa@landconserve.org.
