Get Involved! Volunteer.

Volunteering is a special way that you can help in the preservation of the Madrona Marsh Preserve. We value your time, effort and commitment to a worthwhile job. All of our volunteers are trained in their chosen position or may need to attend a short orientation.

View our Volunteer Opportunities

Special Skills Volunteers:

Share their skills in the arts, writing, photography, design, music, skilled crafts, management, program development, and more. These volunteers help to develop new programs and enhance the Nature Center’s displays, brochures and other educational materials. Volunteer activities are related to the volunteer’s skills. The staff at the Preserve works with Special Skills Volunteers to develop projects that utilize the volunteer’s specific skills. Examples might include: an artist painting murals for a display, a cabinet-maker designing display cases, or a poet contributing poems to a brochure.

Benefits to the Volunteer:

Opportunity to volunteer in a setting that benefits the community and to learn more about nature in the South Bay. Volunteering may also open up new career paths related to natural history and ecology.

Come and volunteer today! Not only would you be learning so much but you also get to meet wonderful people, have fun, and have a firsthand experience of nature at its best! You don't have to be an expert; we will train and assist you.

Student Volunteers:

We offer opportunities for volunteering and service learning every Saturday from 8:45am to 12 noon. Volunteering can be used towards community service hours for high school and college. Students need to be here on time (late-comers will be sent home), be prepared to work, wear close-toed shoes and leave all electronics at home. If the volunteer needs to call home, they may use our phone any time. Open to all ages; participants 14 years and under must be accompanied by an adult and all participants 18 and under must have a waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian. Students can help restore the Preserve, removing non-native plants, replacing them with native ones, and picking up any trash left behind at the Preserve. We provide snacks and drinks at 10:30 a.m. so participants should have eaten a good breakfast before arriving.
