Volunteer Training Opportunities


The Nature Conservancy in Oregon is excited to announce our spring training guide. These trainings provide volunteers with a variety of opportunities to develop and expand leadership and naturalist skills whiles helping to protect some of Oregon’s most remarkable places. To apply for any of the listed opportunities, please contact orvolunteers@tnc.org or (503) 802-8100.

Volunteer Naturalists
Do you enjoy working with people and have a desire to learn more about Oregon’s natural history? If so, then we encourage you to apply to become a volunteer naturalist. Naturalists greet visitors, answer questions, and foster compliance with visitor guidelines at our most heavily visited preserves. Volunteers patrol “their” preserves at least twice during the field season.
Tom McCall Preserve (season April– June): Saturday, April 1
Camassia Natural Area (season April– June): Saturday, April 8
Cascade Head Preserve (season April– October): Saturday, April 22

Crew Leaders
Do you like working outside? Are you looking to hone your leadership skills and share your appreciation for the natural world? Then this training opportunity is for you! Crew leaders provide support and leadership for restoration work parties around the state. Volunteers commit to leading two work parties during the upcoming field season.

Training: Wednesday, May 3 in the evening at our SE Portland office
