Volunteers are at the heart of what we do. EALT Volunteers take great satisfaction in their activities, knowing they're making a true difference by conserving natural areas, building community support, and educating the public about environmental stewardship. A day in the field with our Volunteer Team is a great opportunity to meet like-minded people and have fun working towards a common goal. Check out our Volunteer Manual to find out about the many ways you can get involved throughout the year.
We send an email to our Volunteer Team once a month with upcoming volunteer opportunities. Join our team by subscribing to our volunteer email, contact Steph, our Outreach Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, or check out our upcoming volunteer events.
