Support Us


When you engage in environmental volunteer opportunities, you give back to your community – today and into the future.

We want to get to know you!
Virtual Summer trainings for Volunteer Ambassadors are being planned (while volunteer opportunities are currently on hold due to COVID-19).

Volunteering with Nature Collective gives you an up-close-and-personal opportunity to make a difference in the health of nature. With hands-on projects, you get to experience our lands like never before – and help the community while you’re at it!

Become a Volunteer Ambassador

Do you have a few hours each month on the weekends to volunteer? Because you love the outdoors, we invite you to join us and inspire everyone to connect with, experience, and protect nature.

You can be a voice for the beauty of nature.
As a Volunteer Ambassador (age 16+) you can help to welcome visitors of all ages when they experience Annie’s Canyon Trail + Swami’s Beach + Seaside State Beach. Volunteer Ambassadors provide information that highlights unique flora and fauna – plus guidance on how to enjoy our natural world in a sustainable way.

And, when public programs resume, Volunteer Ambassadors will have more opportunities to encourage people’s discoveries during our nature-themed Family Days + Nature Tours + School Field Trips + Special Events.

Plant a Difference

When you plant indigenous species or remove invasive species – thus rehabilitating our habitats – you make a difference. We have many volunteer opportunities, and both planting & weeding are crucial ones. We usually plant in the winter and weed in the summer.

A Nature Collective biologist oversees the whole process, and you also get a brief nature tour!
