“Volunteers don’t get paid—not because they’re worthless, but because they’re priceless.” 

– Sherry Anderson, author and speaker

“Volunteers will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no volunteers.” 

– Ken Wyman, nonprofit fundraising consultant

The San Juan Preservation Trust offers a volunteer program that invites active participation in our efforts to preserve our cherished island places. We aim to provide you with an experience that we hope is worth that most precious of commodities: your time.

We offer a number of volunteer opportunities that will not only help advance the Preservation Trust’s mission, but will also provide our volunteers with a fun and enriching experience.

There’s something here for everyone who wants to help. Volunteer opportunities range from joining work parties on our easements and preserves to participating in outreach events to assisting with clerical tasks in our Friday Harbor office.

We also invite people with special skills or expertise to suggest ways in which they might help us advance our conservation work.
