Become a McKenzie River Trust Volunteer

There are so many ways to give back to the causes you care most about. We rely on the support of community members like you to help protect and care for the lands and rivers you cherish in western Oregon.

 

We are always looking for committed community members to join our volunteer team. Either in the office or out in the field, we can accomplish so much more with your support. McKenzie River Trust has multiple avenues of volunteerism including internships, events support, on-the-ground stewardship projects, tabling opportunities and more! Let us know how you would like to be involved by contacting us today.
