WildPlaces’ success and growth can be directly linked to the work of volunteers. Volunteers participate in service learning, land restoration, maintain our website, help with mailings, coordinate special events, serve as ambassadors for WildPlaces at events, educate the public, and much more.

In return, volunteers are rewarded with the knowledge that their work is meaningful and has contributed to preserving exceptional lands in the Southern Sierra. WildPlaces recognizes volunteers for their work and accomplishments. As well, volunteering also provides an opportunity to attend special events, meet new people, learn new skills, and work with a dedicated and knowledgeable staff.

To apply for a volunteer position, please send an e-mail to info@wildplaces.net. Include your name, contact information, the type of volunteer work you want, and provide general information about your background and skills. Let us know if you have a particular area of interest. We will send you a volunteer application for you to complete and return.
