Volunteer Opportunities

OEC loves our volunteers! While our needs aren’t all that routine, we do occasionally have research projects or outreach events that we need help with. If you’re interested in volunteering with us, please send an email to [email protected] describing your interests and including a resume or link to your LinkedIn profile.

If you would like to regularly speak up for environmental protections, check out our Grassroots Action & Information Network (GAIN).

Other helpful volunteer resources:

EarthShare of Oregon: Lists a variety of environmentally oriented volunteer opportunities.

Hands on Portland: A Portland-based organization dedicated to matching available volunteers with community projects. The mission is to find short-term projects for casual volunteers.

OregonVolunteers!: The Oregon Commission for Voluntary Action & Service’s site with resources by county for volunteers and managers, news and a calendar of events.

VolunteerMatch: Connects volunteers to organizations nationwide. Enter your zip code for information about opportunities in your city. Each opportunity includes time requirements and skills required.
