Stewardship Events: Hands-on Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Jeanne Henderson plants a tree during Earth Day 2013.Want an insider’s look at some of the most beautiful places on Oregon’s north coast? Are you willing to put in a few hours of work to ensure that these places stay beautiful forever? Then consider joining us for a stewardship event.

These volunteer work parties vary in difficulty; some are short, easy and family-friendly; others require a greater commitment of time and effort. Wintertime events often involve planting native species; summertime events typically involve eradicating invasive species (in other words, pulling weeds). All stewardship events will likely leave you muddy, tired, and glowing with the satisfaction of a meaningful job well done. NCLC will supply the tools needed. Bring gloves, sturdy boots (or rubber boots, as necessary), rain gear, drinking water, and any snacks you desire. Typically, we do not have access to toilets or potable water. Bring lunch if it is a day-long event.
