The Methow Conservancy began as a volunteer organization and to this day
supporters who donate their time and skills are essential to our conservation
efforts. From leading programs and hikes to stamping envelopes, if you
would like to join in
our efforts to protect the Methow Valley, please call Mary at our office
at 509-996-2870. To receive emails about specific volunteer jobs as they
arise, get on our "Volunteer Stars" email list by emailing

Listed below are just a few
of the ongoing volunteer opportunities we offer. If you have ideas or
suggestions for ways to get involved, please let us know.
In-house: Whether you like tangible tasks that are easy to do
or want to use your creative juices preparing materials and displays for
events, we have many projects to plug volunteers into this summer. Assist
with graphic design, a display about our work, mailing our Good Neighbor
Handbook, preparing programs and trips, and more.
Outdoors: Work in solitude or chat up the public - we have loads of jobs for you!
Here are just a few:

Help us at our Farmer's Market
booth in July or other events throughout the summer where you can work
with other supporters and chat with folks about our work and a variety
of conservation topics.
Don't have enough work to
do around your own property? We have a public garden at our riverfront
office that needs some on-going attention and tender-loving-care! Create
a peaceful native plant spot for others to enjoy.
Amateur and professional
naturalists of all backgrounds help us with public programs and field
trips. Join them and help us expand our educational offerings.
Stewardship and restoration
is a big part of our work, especially with so many conservation easements. Work with our
staff and other volunteers in the field to pull barbed wire and weeds,
monitor easements and more.
