  • Assist with basic office tasks like inventorying or photo copies.
  • Other projects may be available based on volunteers interest.
Virtual Tasks may include:
  • Make updates to our educational google site. Training and assistance will be available this if needed.
  • Assist in creating new educational materials including visuals, scripts, and models.

About Environmental Volunteers

Mission Statement

To promote the understanding of and responsibility for the environment through hands-on science education.


In 1972, when awareness of threats to the San Francisco Bay ecosystem began to grow, a group of women concerned about preserving the estuary for future generations created a small, hands-on program for local children. The program included a field trip to the Bay so students could experience it, know it, enjoy it, and grow to take care of it. This was the birth of Environmental Volunteers. Since then, more than 300,000 children and adults have explored natural science learning with us!
