FOR INDIVIDUALS
 
Welcome to the Individual Volunteer page!  Volunteers are the backbone to supporting the Catalina Island Conservancy's mission by being responsible stewards of the land through a balance of conservation, education and recreation. There are many ways you can contribute to this undertaking.

Thursday Mornings at the James H. Ackerman Native Plant Nursery ~ Volunteering at the James H. Ackerman Native Plant Nursery provides an excellent opportunity to gain access to the interior of Catalina Island and become more familiar with Island ecology and plant species while helping the nursery achieve its goals.

Enjoy the tranquil morning in Middle Ranch while working with plants in a casual, social environment. Volunteers receive training in the horticulture and ecology of Catalina's varied flora and tasks are tailored to all ability levels. Volunteers are welcome every Thursday year-round from 7:30am – 12:00pm. Typical projects include seed germination, seed collection, plant propagation, weeding, light construction, and nursery maintenance.

Windward Beach Clean-Up ~ Enjoy the great outdoors while combing the sand for debris! Help keep Catalina’s Windward Beaches clean and pristine. Clean-up locations rotate throughout the year to keep all four of our windward beaches beautiful. Every second Saturday of the month we leave Avalon at 8am and return by noon. All supplies, drinks & transportation provided.

For both of the above opportunities, please call 310-510-2595, Ext. 112.

While traveling you will have an opportunity to see the island’s rugged coastal views, rolling hills, incredible ocean views, plant life, and a chance to see some wildlife!

On Thursday, you return to the island’s nature preserve and visit the James H. Ackerman Native Plant Nursery. Here you will enjoy completing a variety of tasks while working closely with the island’s native and endemic* plant life.

Other Volunteer Opportunities:

Administrative Assistance ~ Word processing, filing, photocopying, and answering phones are just a few of the tasks done everyday in all our departments. If you enjoy working in an office environment and feel comfortable with a computer, photocopier and fax machine come spend the day (or longer) with us.

Mailings ~ Monthly flyers, quarterly newsletters, and notices are sent to Conservancy support groups, volunteers and island and mainland residents. These mailings often require stuffing envelopes, affixing mailing labels and running letters through the stamp machine. There is also the art of bulk mailing; a process which requires a good eye for detail to sort and bundle mailings by zip code. Project locations can be flexible, i.e. they can be worked on at home or in Avalon at the Conservancy House.

Volunteer today!
