You can help make a difference on Catalina Island. We are thrilled to re-launch our volunteer program, after a hiatus due to pandemic related restrictions and welcome Angelina Komatovich to the Conservancy team as our volunteer engagement specialist. We have four exciting volunteer opportunities open for your participation including old favorites and new options.
As a Conservancy Interpretation Volunteer, you will help visitors understand more about the Island and the work of the Conservancy. These volunteers may spend time at Wrigley Memorial & Botanic Garden engaging with visitors, help Trailhead visitors learn about recreation options or connect with learners at festivals and events. Horticulturalist Volunteers support the conservation and care of native plants and habitats, typically helping at the Ackerman Native Plant Nursery in Middle Ranch or getting in the weeds at the Garden. The Conservancy hosts or participates in many special events each year, several of which need Special Event Volunteer help! In fact, we are currently looking for volunteers for the Catalina: The Wild Side Art Show & Sale Nov. 7 in Newport Beach, and you have plenty of time to start thinking about volunteering for our Conservancy Ball on April 23, 2022, celebrating our 50th anniversary. For a more rugged experience, you can join as a Field Conservation Volunteer. These volunteers work with Conservancy staff in the field directly caring for the land, typically helping with trail maintenance and removal of invasive plants.
All volunteers are stewards of the Island and help the Conservancy fulfill our mission to be a responsible steward of our lands through a balance of conservation, education and recreation.
Contact the volunteer department for more information. We look forward to welcoming back our long term volunteers as well as welcoming new members to our Conservancy family. (link firstname.lastname@example.org )
