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!

Upcoming Community Volunteer Days


Hileman Park Clean Up, Thursday, October 25th

We are teaming up with our friends at Lane County Parks to help care for this hidden gem located in North Eugene. Hileman County Park shares its borders with Green Island on the west side of the Willamette River, with visitors often utilizing both County and McKenzie River Trust lands to walk, fish, swim and connect with nature.


Clematis Clearing at Chub Slough, Saturday, October 27th

Dig in to help protect your local watershed from invasive species. This project will include hand pulling invasive clematis (Clematis vitalba) from along the banks of a beautiful stretch of the McKenzie River just outside of town off of Camp Creek Road.


Volunteer Willow Staking at Green Island, Saturday, November 10th

Get out your muck boots and dig in with McKenzie River Trust as we plant willow stakes in and around the side channels of Green Island! This project is a part of a larger restoration planting effort happening on the island. Grab your waders, or borrow a pair of ours because this project is sure to be a ton of fun!
