Like 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.

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 a trail, volunteering at a work party is an opportunity to get out on the land and help get some important and much appreciated work done.
Ongoing throughout the year
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 with staff to a special, conserved property where you'll have the opportunity to document what you see and experience. We'd love to share what you captured on our website and with our supporters and followers on Facebook 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Event Booth Hosts

You've been following us on Facebook, reading our monthly eNews and learned about the exciting campaign to conserve the Rogue River Preserve. Now, share what you've learned and help us get the word out about land conservation! Even if you don't know exactly how it's all done (but you have an interest in learning) we'd love for you to join us!
Join staff, fellow volunteers and SOLC board members in our outreach booth at public events throughout Southern Oregon. This is a fun gig when you get to engage with the community and spread enthusiasm for safeguarding nature. Talking points provided. You bring the smiles!

Become a volunteer for Loving the Land
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 everyday during the last week of April every year in Ashland at the Oredson-Todd Woods. Facilitators host a rotation of investigative and exploratory field study stations where students learn about geology, stream invertebrates and forest ecology. Students 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 a young person, call or email us to request to be contacted before the next program launches:
