Volunteers are a crucial component of Wood River Land Trust’s work. Volunteers help us care for the land entrusted to us, plan and implement community events, and conduct office and field work.
If you are seeking hands-on involvement in protecting our natural areas and healthy waters, please contact us today!
Volunteer Opportunities Include:
• Planning work days on local preserves
• Conducting field research on preserves and on the Big Wood River
• Collating and synthesizing field work data
• Adopt-a-Preserve, in which you work with a group of your neighbors to maintain the health and beauty of a Wood River Land Trust preserve in your own neighborhood
• Helping prepare membership and community mailings
• Planning and implementing fund-raising and community events
