Volunteer with Us!
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Solano Land Trust! Volunteers are vital to our work.
We offer flexible scheduling and opportunities both indoors and outdoors. We have an office in Fairfield and five major properties in Solano County: Jepson Prairie, the King-Swett Ranches, Lynch Canyon, Rush Ranch, and Rockville Trails.
Here are ways you can help us care for these lands and share them with our community:
1. Search for "Volunteer Opportunity" on Solano Land Trust's calendar
Do a search for "volunteer opportunity" on our calendar to learn how you can help us get things done in the office, join community workdays at Rush Ranch (the first Saturdays of most months), do citizen science (the third Friday of most months), and more.
Featured volunteer opportunity: Trail Crew
Join our new trail crew team! This volunteering is much needed to help us care for trails on the 10,000+ acres of land we own and protect in Solano County. The team will be led by Solano Land Trust's Land Steward, Ken Poerner. Our first location will be Lynch Canyon and our first project will be prepping existing trails for spring events. Tasks will include removing weeds, mowing, and re-contouring trails.
Our upcoming trail crew dates are Saturdays, May 11 and May 18, both starting at 9am and ending at noon. Meet Ken at the kiosk in the Lynch Canyon parking lot for orientation and training. Bring a backpack with plenty of water and snacks or a bag lunch. Wear work gloves, boots, long pants, and layered clothes, and bring protection from sun, wind, and fog. Bringing tools is appreciated, especially hoes and cordless trimmers (also known as weed eaters, weed whackers, or string mowers). You'll get a free parking pass for the day, so you can enjoy the afternoon at Lynch Canyon after volunteering that morning!
To join this new trail crew for one day or more, RSVP to Natalie at 707-432-0150 x200 or email@example.com. Note: Plans are canceled if it's raining; call Ken at 707-580-6277 if the weather is uncertain.
2. Help with Events
Scan the events on our calendar. When you find one or more you want to help with, contact Natalie at 707-432-0150 x200 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can make these events an even greater success by helping with their planning, production, or clean-up. We often need help behind-the-scenes (e.g., supply and logistics coordinators) and in-the-spotlight (e.g., publicists, hosts, photographers, and videographers).
