When you volunteer with the Cache Creek Conservancy you share in the benefits of volunteering: reduced stress, finding friends, helping the community, and learning new skills. Volunteering also helps protect your mental and physical health. Choose from the following list or let us know how you would like to help!
Board members support the work of the Cache Creek Conservancy and provide mission-based and strategic leadership.
Volunteers assist with environmental education virtual or in-person field trips for elementary students or outreach events for people of all ages. Lead an activity station or guide a nature hike!
Guide visitors through different habitat types while engaging in conversation about ecosystem processes, plant communities, and native flora and fauna.
Be part of a team that helps to maintain and improve Cache Creek Nature Preserve trails. This is a great way for groups or co-workers to help the greater Yolo County community. Most needed in the spring and early summer.
You can help restore Cache Creek by volunteering at Conservancy restoration sites throughout the watershed during community planting days typically held in the fall and spring. If you'd prefer a more regular schedule, there are opportunities with the Memorial Grove, Tending and Gathering Garden, or small nursery.
Who could resist baby barn owls, wood ducks or tree swallows? Volunteers assist with monitoring and maintenance of bird boxes at the Nature Preserve. You could also monitor bird populations from egg to fledgling! This volunteer position is seasonal, starting in spring going into summer.
If you love to tell stories or plan parties, the Conservancy has opportunities for you! Showcase your artistic talents by crafting interpretive displays, creating social media content, or writing press releases. For party planners, we need help preparing for our Anniversary Celebration in April 2021
The Cache Creek Conservancy also maintains historic equipment, historic buildings, and not-so-historic buildings. If your skill set is more construction or minor repair focused, your assistance is most welcome!
