The Seattle Times had a really nice editorial today about our volunteer program and the awards we and our volunteers have received recently. Here's the lowdown on how you can help:
- Check out the list of current volunteer opportunities in the right-hand column. Most of these are long-term or recurring volunteer projects.
- Watch our calendar of volunteer projects on the website of our partner, the Student Conservation Association. These are mostly short-term (one to five day) projects. Nothing is posted yet, and not much is going on right now because of an abundance of spring snow, but we'll start posting projects within the next month. You can also follow all of our volunteer program activities on our master calendar in the right-hand column of this page.
- If you'd like to get on our mailing list, just send me an e-mail. I hope to get our our first newsletter of the season within the next week or two, and after that, I'll be sending out regular updates as projects and training opportunities are announced. You can also watch for news on this blog, of course.
- Volunteer with our (award-winning) partners! The Washington Trails Association is already listing trails projects that you can sign up for, for instance; and Olympic National Park, with more low-elevation terrain, has projects underway. In addition, you can get involved through the National Parks Conservation Association, Washington's National Park Fund, or The Mountaineers.
