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 Preserve.

Here are ways you can help us care for these lands and share them with our community:

 
1. Get involved in one or more featured volunteer opportunities below:
 

We expect well over 400 participants. Some race to win – 5K, 10K and half marathon course records are 23 minutes and 27 seconds, 43 minutes and 39 seconds, and 1 hour, 31 minutes and 28 seconds, respectively. Others go purely for fun at their own pace. Some dress up in costumes! It's a very fun event and as volunteers you get to cheer folks on. It's truly a celebration of what the human body can do, and of friends and family.
