Become a Volunteer Today!

The Whidbey Camano Land Trust’s volunteer program gives everyone an opportunity to help protect and care for the land! Without our committed volunteers, the work we do would not be possible. We’re always looking for enthusiastic volunteers – check out the opportunities below!

Work Party

Our primary responsibility as a Land Trust is to care for and maintain our lands forever. Second, is to connect the community to these amazing places. Work parties are the ideal opportunity to fulfill these responsibilities. Plus, it’s a great chance for our members and the general public to see and care for both Conservation Easements and Fee Owned Land that we steward.

Silliman Preserve restoration

Work party volunteers help build and maintain trails, remove invasive species, plant trees and perform many other activities.  Since it is our responsibility to protect these lands forever, we need all the help we can get.  Lace up your boots, grab your gloves and come make a difference! Work parties generally happen between March and November. You can sign up for work parties here.

Be advised: many sites do not have a restroom.

If you’d like more information about work parties, contact our Stewardship Assistant, Taylor Schmuki, at

Office Volunteer

Preserving the land doesn’t only require outdoor work. There are many hours spent ensuring our organization continues to function efficiently and properly to maintain these lands.  So, if you have skills organizing or editing, or even just enjoy making copies, we need your help! And here’s a perk: this is the one volunteer opportunity we provide that can guarantee you will stay dry, even when it’s raining!

If you’d like more information about becoming an office volunteer, contact our Operations Specialist, Mekare Bowen, at

Group Volunteering

Volunteering as a group brings a unique and gratifying experience for all party members. Whether you are a business, club or just a group of good friends looking to make a difference, the Land Trust is happy to work with you. Our organization provides opportunities to volunteer on the stunning landscapes of Island County, be active in the outdoors and make an impact in the community.

Feel free to join one of our scheduled parties or contact Stewardship Assistant, Taylor Schmuki, at, to schedule your own event

Benefits of Volunteering

Our amazing volunteers are key members in protecting, stewarding, and maintaining access to our precious lands and waters. We like to show our appreciation for their time, skills and dedication in several ways:

Service Hours. If you need community service hours, we have opportunities and will happily provide the documentation for your time.

Food and Views. Snacks and drinks are offered while working on these beautiful lands. Volunteering also provides great opportunities to acquire new skills, make new friends and see new parts of the Islands.

Swag. To show our gratitude and celebrate your dedication to these treasured lands and waters, you can receive some new Land Trust gear! We have hats, shirts, sweaters, stickers, and more. Join us for at least three volunteer events to start your collection.
