Take your volunteering to the next level!
Volunteer Leads spend five Saturdays a year helping to facilitate volunteer restoration parties that improve the historic Vancouver Trout Hatchery and the 100-acre natural area of Columbia Springs. Volunteer Leads also help out at community events that foster greater awareness of the natural world and inspire stewardship. Finally, Leads have opportunities to get more involved with our On-Site Education Program and Hatchery Management.
No experience necessary! Learn or further develop restoration, teaching, outreach, and leadership skills. Training is free, but pre-registration and completed online application is required. Training is scheduled for the last Saturday in January each year.
