Volunteer at Slide Ranch

The contribution volunteers make at Slide Ranch truly helps us deliver our mission. Whether you're a student fulfilling community service hours, a corporate and community group looking for team-building, or someone who wants to put your green thumb to good use, Slide Ranch provides challenging, engaging and meaningful experiences. 

Slide Ranch welcomes the participation of all volunteers, aged 14 and older. We have set times and days for individuals to volunteer, and groups are scheduled on a case by case basis. Volunteers may also schedule a one-time visit or volunteer on a regular basis as part of an ongoing project.  

You'll work under the supervision of trained staff on our teaching farm and 134 acres of wild lands, contributing to Slide Ranch in a variety of ways:

  • Gardening - weeding, pruning, prepping garden beds, planting and pest control, composting, restoring native plants and removing invasive plants, and maintaining trails and beach access, etc.
  • Farm & Facilities - fixing fences, mucking out animal barns, building repairs, painting, etc. 
  • Office work - technology support, mailings, fundraising calls, social media, photography, filing, research, etc. 
  • Events - help with event set-up and de-rig, performers, craftspeople, parking and traffic control, etc.

The amount of work the Clif Bar employees managed to achieve in one day was estimated to be equivalent to three people’s full-time jobs at Slide Ranch. Truly amazing stuff.
— Marika Bergsund, Executive Director at Slide Ranch


All volunteer visits must be scheduled in advance. For individuals, we offer the visits each Thursday, 9am-12pm through the summer months.

Corporate and community groups can schedule half or full-day volunteer session.
