Description

Volunteer Opportunities
Get out on the land. Learn about conservation and natural resources. Join the fun.
Stewardship Excursions
These half to day-long outings combine exploration of our unique conservation properties with rewarding work projects. From erosion control at Little Black Mountain to native seed collection near the San Pablo Bay, volunteers get to break a sweat and gain an insiders view of our protected lands. Work projects vary in difficulty and are always followed by a fun, informative hike. Stewardship Excursions occur twice a month.

Conservation MonitorsWorking in teams of three, our Conservation Monitors visit over 40 protected properties each year. Collectively, our monitors visit more than 10,000 acres of protected land each year, hiking, taking photos, completing reports, and identify issues of concern for our stewardship department. Minimum time commitment is two field trips per year plus two training days. Training for new monitors is held every year in October.

Go To Gang
The Go to Gang is a group of a dozen or so volunteers who are our on-call stewardship crew. In addition to completing routine maintenance projects on SLT's preserve properties, the Gang also responds to emergency situations such as downed-trees, blocked roads or fire hazards. Without their help, SLT staff would be swamped with the never-ending details of protecting the land forever! Time commitment is flexible; projects occur on various properties throughout the year.

Organizational Assistance
Our office volunteers, friends and supporters help with a range of projects, from fundraising efforts, technical assistance, hikes, outings, to events and more. If you have a special skill you'd like to offer, please contact us to get involved!
