LandPaths stewards a number of preserves throughout Sonoma County. Drop-in and long-term volunteer stewardship activities include invasive species removal, road and trail maintenance, native planting, and forestry work. We’ll provide the tools, gloves, water, and light snack.
Owl Camp, Inspired Forward, and In Our Own Backyard (IOOBY)
Inspire, encourage, and motivate youth from across Sonoma County in outdoor experiences that tap into the opportunities for wonder, learning, and connection offered by nature! Volunteers like you are key to helping local youth foster a love of the land.
Bohemia Ecological Preserve Docents are instrumental to our mission of providing public access opportunities while creating a vibrant people-powered preserve. After a training process, docents are ready to lead fun, informative hikes through the 1,000 acres preserve near Occidental. Must be 18 years or older and certified in first aid and CPR. For more information about Bohemia Docents contact Laura Revilla at email@example.com.
Nos pueden ayudar los voluntaries con una variedad de trabajos, includyendo tomando fotos, organizando gente en los caminos, y cocinando durante dias de campamento.
Grow food, pull weeds, build compost, tend native plants and vineyards, and help support our thriving community garden programs at Bayer Farm and Andy’s Unity Park! We also need fruit tree specialists, harvest coordinators, and lunch program assistants for our free summer lunch program, in partnership with Redwood Empire Food Bank, held at both locations.
Wildlife Corridor Program
Our Wildlife Corridor Program volunteers use wildlife cameras on our preserves to document wildlife movement and patterns. Field volunteers are in charge of the wildlife cameras. Field responsibilities include changing SD cards and camera batteries and choosing 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.
Office volunteers help with data entry, office organization, and other tasks. Computer proficiency, especially with Microsoft Windows is often important. Days and times are flexible.
If you are an amateur or professional photographer and enjoy getting outside, you can help by documenting the action and beauty for us! If you love to write, you might help out with our blog. Good at Instagram or TikTok? We can use some help with those platforms too! Time commitment can be casual or ongoing.
TrekSonoma (on pause)
Volunteering with TrekSonoma is a great way to contribute to the building of a more interconnected, accessible landscape in Sonoma County. Volunteer tasks may include: shuttling kayaks or people before and after treks, inventorying trek gear, preparing meals, setting up camp, cooking and cleaning the camp kitchen. Once your volunteer task is done, you are welcome to join the trek! You can also earn a spot on a future trek earning points. 20 volunteer hours completed will earn you one free trek. One volunteer hour will earn you $25 off your trek registration fee.
