Volunteer with SLT

These half to day-long outings combine exploration of our unique conservation properties with rewarding work projects. From erosion control projects and trail work to native seed propagation and invasive plant removal, volunteers get to break a sweat and gain an insiders view of our protected lands. Work projects vary in difficulty and are always followed by a fun, informative hike.
Conservation Easement Monitors
Typically working in teams of three, our CE Monitors visit over 40 protected properties annually. Collectively, these dedicated member volunteers monitor more than 10,000 acres of protected land where they hike, take photos, complete written reports and identify issues of concern for our stewardship department. Minimum commitment is two field trips per year plus attending a training and maintaining a current Land Trust membership. Trainings are held annually, usually in early spring.
Go To Gang
The Go to Gang is a group of volunteers who are our on-call stewardship crew. In addition to completing routine maintenance projects on SLT’s preserve properties, the Gang also responds to emergency situations such as downed-trees, blocked roads or fire hazards. Without their help, SLT staff would be swamped with the never-ending details of protecting the land forever! Time commitment is flexible; projects occur on various properties throughout the year.
Our office volunteers, friends and supporters help with a range of projects, from fundraising efforts, technical assistance, hikes, outings, to events and more. If you have a special skill you would like to offer, please contact us to get involved!
Sonoma Land Trust offers internships each semester. Internships can range from field work in stewardship to outings with the On the Land program to office assistance opportunities and more. Students at Sonoma State University and Santa Rosa Junior College are eligible to receive 1 to 2 units of academic credit. Visit our internship page for current openings.
