Wildlife Corridor Volunteer Program
Wildlife Corridor Program volunteers use wildlife cameras on LandPaths preserves to document wildlife movement and patterns. Volunteers can work either in the field or from home. Field volunteers are in charge of the wildlife cameras themselves; changing SD cards and batteries and picking camera locations. Our database volunteers work from the comfort of their own home, identifying animals in photos and adding photo information to our master database. Time commitment is 1-year. There is an annual training and sign-up. Contact LandPaths Stewardship Coordinator, Erin Mullen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 707-544-7284 ext. 23 for more information.
IOOBY Volunteer Program
IOOBY volunteers help LandPaths staff implement our repeated field trip program, In Our Own Back Yard, (IOOBY). Students visit local open spaces, preserves, and private properties 4 times throughout the year to explore themes like Discovery and Exploration, Watersheds, Stewardship, and Habitat. By volunteering with IOOBY, you can help kids understand and interpret nature while hiking Sonoma County trails. Teach students about the importance of recycling, composting, and sorting our waste. Explore your local watershed and the plants and animals that live in it. Work to restore native landscapes through hands- on stewardship projects with kids, and more! To sign up for your first field trip, contact LandPaths Education Director, Bree Benton Arthur at email@example.com or 707-544-7284 ext. 13.
