|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 and transportation provided.
For any questions, or to sign up, please contact Lesly Lieberman, our volunteer coordinator at LLieberman@CatalinaConservancy.org or 310-510-2595 Ext. 112.
