Volunteer

As a small nonprofit, we have very few paid employees. That means that much of the work we do is done by volunteers. We are always looking for people to help us out in a wide variety of capacities both in the office and on the trails. Some of our volunteer work is event based and some is ongoing.

If you work for a larger company like Microsoft or Starbucks, check with your HR Department for information on their volunteer hours matching program.

A few of the ways you can donate your time to Evergreen is by joining us for our trail work parties or with administrative tasks such as event staffing and planning. Get in touch!
