Help us celebrate 30 years of Conservation

We are celebrating 30 years of conserving Nevada's lands and waters by getting out and giving back to nature through volunteer events across the state. 

Look for an event near you; check back to this page often for dates and event details.

Can't make it to a volunteer event? There are lots of opportunities to explore the places we protect, or you can make a donation to support our work today.

Volunteers in Nevada

There are many ways to get involved in helping the Conservancy fulfill its mission in Nevada. We work with anyone who is interested at our community volunteer days, and we're always looking to engage corporate partners through volunteer events, too. Watch this recent video produced by one of our local corporate volunteer partners, Patagonia, to see our work in action. Our other corporate volunteer partners have included Starbucks Carson Valley Roasting Plant, Caesars Entertainment, Wells Fargo, and NV Energy.

Get involved as a volunteer today.

In addition to volunteer events focused on restoration and conservation work – what we like to call “hands-in-dirt” projects – we are also always looking for and open to other types of volunteering you may be interested in.

Examples of this would include but are certainly not limited to:

  • Photography of preserves and/or work taking place.
  • In-office help with filing, clerical, and general staff support work.
  • Specialized support of staff such as GIS mapping, monitoring of research projects, etc.
  • Helping with community outreach & volunteer events, acting as a docent at a preserve, or leading tours.
When Volunteering

The Conservancy will provide all the tools, but think about bringing:

  • Work gloves
  • Solid, sturdy shoes.
  • Sunscreen and/or sun hat
  • Water and a small snack
  • Lots of energy!

Also, you can download and print a volunteer waiver form to fill out in order to participate. 

Please note that minors need to be accompanied by an adult.   


Patagonia Partnership

The Nature Conservancy’s partnership with Patagonia, Inc. extends beyond working with sheep ranchers in South America who provide wool for Patagonia’s outdoor clothing. Here in Nevada, volunteers from the Patagonia Reno Distribution Center have put in more than 350 hours restoring wetland areas at McCarran Ranch Preserve on the Truckee River.
