Hundreds of amazing volunteers donate their time every year to be part of the Conservancy's efforts.

Volunteer opportunities include:

  • River Cleanups
  • Habitat Restoration
  • Tree Planting
  • Trail Maintenance

Not the outdoorsy type? No worries, we have jobs for you too!

We also arrange for special events with large groups such as companies, religious organizations, community service associations, and school groups.

We are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers who share our passion for protecting open space and the environment. If you are interested in joining our efforts please see the link here, or email volunteer@venturahillsides.org. Our volunteer events are fun, informative, and full of interesting people.

 

Internships

The Conservancy offers college and university students the opportunity to work with staff as interns. These unpaid positions may have a Conservation, Education, or Administration focus. We require a minimum commitment of 20 hours per week, unless special circumstances apply. The Conservancy is willing to coordinate with the student's academic institution for course credit. Contact info@venturahillsides.org for more information.
