Regular Basis Volunteering

The Nature Conservancy's Upper San Pedro Program based at Ramsey Canyon Preserve has an active volunteer program. If you are interested in volunteering on a regular basis and you live in the area, this program needs you! Consider volunteering on a weekly basis. Current ways to volunteer include: greeting preserve visitors; working outdoors on restoration, invasive species, and fuel reductions/fire management projects; selling items in our gift store; removing trash; and working outdoors in maintenance projects such as painting, plumbing, and electrical work.

You will gain many rewarding experiences, such as: meeting new friends, a general orientation to The Nature Conservancy, natural history training, on the job training, social events, field trips, and on-going natural history education training. Initial raining usually takes place during the spring and fall seasons. Training materials are offered.
