Volunteer with Us!

We offer a wide variety of volunteer opportunities ranging from day projects to 10-day long “working vacations.” Check our Events Calendar to see what is available near you, or email us if you would like to set up a project.


Volunteer Wilderness Rangers (VWR) provide a number of critical volunteer activities in the back country areas of the Los Padres National Forest. These include trail work, wilderness patrols, repairs to structures, maintenance of historic buildings and other tasks — whatever needs to be done that the Forest Service can’t. Contact us if you would like to join our annual VWR training: Volunteer@LPForest.org
