Volunteering and Citizen Science Opportunities on the West Coast

It takes all kinds of stakeholders—from land management agencies, local governments, and individuals—to protect and restore our parks, waterways, and coastlines. By volunteering and conducting citizen science, you can preserve vital habitat for marine and anadromous species, help scientists gather valuable data, and work towards a more sustainable future. The West Coast Region accepts volunteers aged 18+ on a case-by-case basis. If you are interested in volunteering with us please complete the Volunteer Interest Form below.
