Make a Difference!
Bear Yuba Land Trust is a volunteer-driven organization. We invite you to join our dedicated team of volunteers. People volunteer their time for several reasons: they have a desire to “give back” to the community; they believe in the Land Trust mission; and they want to meet new people and have some fun. Whatever the reason, volunteers know they are helping to protect beautiful landscapes, local agriculture and open space in our community.
Volunteers can help with several programs throughout the year including:
General Office: This can include help with bulk mailings, filing, phone calling, vacation coverage and more.
Photography and Graphic Design: We could use help with designing flyers, programs and other marketing collateral. We also need photography at every event we hold, including people and beautiful landscapes.
IT Support: If you have any experience with desktop publishing, website support, databases, networking or financial applications, please give us a call.
Special Events: Help is needed with planning, coordinating supplies, food, setup and cleanup. Our events include stewardship workshops, neighborhood collaborations, member and volunteer picnics, etc.
Event Outreach Booth: Please consider donating a few hours of your time at street fairs, the County Fair and other events, to hand out brochures and sell T-shirts.
Treks and Camp Programs: We need help with our guided Treks program, Armchair Treks, Treks for Health, as well as our family outings and Children’s Camp at Burton Homestead.
Stars Benefit Concert: We need support in a wide range of activities, from marketing to event staging to VIP management.
Fundraising and Member Outreach: We need help with grant writing and fundraising programs. We also need help with our newsletter, special appeals and member communications.
Trails Building and Maintenance: Join our Trails Coordinator, Bill Haire, and others, as they create new and maintain existing trails in our community. We need everything from bush-whacking, to raking and bridge building.
Lands Stewardship: Do you like to spend time outdoors working on land projects? We need help from time-to-time doing repairs, cutting weeds and tree removal.
Volunteers enjoy many perks of service including: T-shirts, Trek vouchers, concert tickets, canvas bags, and recognition at appreciation events, such as our volunteer picnic at Burton Homestead. We invite you to join us in connecting our community with the land.
