Volunteer Opportunities

When you volunteer with the Cache Creek Conservancy you can share in the benefits of volunteering: reduced stress, find friends, help the community, and learn new skills. Volunteering can also help protect your mental and physical health.

You can choose from the following list, or let us know how you would like to help!

Board of Directors

Board members support the work of the Cache Creek Conservancy and provide mission-based leadership and strategic leadership.  

Environmental Education

Volunteers assist with the CCC environmental education programs for visiting school groups to the Nature Preserve. You can help lead activity stations or lead nature hikes. 

Cache Creek Nature Preserve Tours

Help set up a tour program at the Cache Creek Nature Preserve. Show people features like "Detroit riprap" or describe the many kinds of wildlife that call the Nature Preserve home.

Trail Team Maintenance and Repair

Be part of a team that helps to maintain and improve Cache Creek Nature Preserve trails. Great way for groups or co-workers to help the greater Yolo County community. Most needed in the spring and early summer. 

Restoration and Gardening

You can help restore the Cache Creek environment by helping at volunteer planting days at Conservancy restoration sites. If you'd rather garden at a regular site, check out the opportunities at our Memorial Grove, Tending and Gathering Garden, or our small nursey.


Bird Boxes

Who could resist baby barn owls? Volunteers assist with monitoring and maintaining bird boxes on the Nature Preserve. You could also count bird populations! This volunteer position is seasonal, starting in spring and into summer. 

Media Mavens and Events

If you love to write or plan parties, the Conservancy has the opportunities for you! Showcase your writing or artistic talents by helping us with interpretive displays, social media content, or press releases. 

For party planners, we need help with preparing for our 20th anniversary celebration in April 2020!

Building Maintenance

If you are a fix-it person, please consider helping out the Cache Creek Conservancy by maintaining historic buildings--and not so historic buildings--with minor repairs.
