How Can You Volunteer at NCLC?


Everyone is welcome to join our Stewardship Days, whether you’re a first-timer or a regular volunteer. Our stewardship program is a great way to visit some of NCLC’s most special properties, while helping with stewardship activities that will help keep the land healthy and thriving.

Each Wednesday from May through September, our stewardship crew plans to be at one of our properties on the Oregon North Coast. W³ days focus on whatever the land steward determines is that week’s priority. Often it involves weed removal activities but may include other kinds of projects, such as seeding, planting and plant maintenance, native plant caretaking, trail building/maintenance, and site cleanups. Learn more about Weed Warrior Wednesdays.


Get involved in community science at the Cape Falcon Marine Reserve, the centerpiece of NCLC’s marine program. There are various opportunities throughout the year, from bird monitoring and sea star surveys to serving as a tidepool ambassador. Stay up to date on upcoming volunteers activities at our Event Page.


Site Stewards are highly dedicated volunteers who agree to visit, report on, and conduct stewardship duties at one or more assigned NCLC habitat reserves three to four times a year. With some 60 habitat reserves spread over three counties, NCLC has come to depend on our Site Stewardship Program.
