Volunteers can learn plant identification, GPS data collection, and eradication and removal skills. Group work days are welcome, but are subject to weather and timing.

We love working with our surrounding communities. We’d love for you to work with us too!

Volunteer With Us 

Keep an eye out for opportunities for volunteer work days with the CWMA, and with our partners! A community calendar below can help you keep track of them.

STUDENTS! Thinking about a career in wildlife biology, conservation biology, or natural resource management? (Or something related, we can’t keep up with the colleges and their concentrations!)  Come spend a day with the strike team and they will show you just how hard a biological technician works.  They love sharing their chosen career and we promise you will learn plenty in your time with us. We will have one or two shadow days a year. Please reach out to us here to learn more.
