Embedding sustainability into daily life in Central Oregon

Home » Get Involved » Volunteer



We need volunteers to help us year-round with a variety of activities, from office projects to mentoring student green teams at local schools to getting your hands dirty in our Kansas Avenue Learning Garden.  Many of our 35 member groups—other environmental organizations active in Central Oregon—need volunteer help as well.

Current Volunteer Needs

We are currently in need of event volunteers!

  • 16th Annual Green Tour | September 24We need your help to make the 16th Annual Green Tour a success! The Tour will take place on Saturday, September 24th from 10:00 – 5:00. We need volunteers to help greet people at homes and answer questions. (Technical expertise not required, and you will learn quite a bit about your home!) We also need help with our electric vehicle Ride and Drive event. Volunteers will be divided into two shifts: 9:45 – 1:30 and 1:30 – 5:15. Please contact Kim if you are interested in lending a hand. And you can read more about the Green Tour here.
  • Sustainability Awards | November 3: The Environmental Center hosts the bi-annual Sustainability Awards to highlight the determined and persistent change makers—in business, government, nonprofits and the community—who are essential to achieving a sustainable future. The awards take place on November 3rd from 5:00 – 7:00pm at the Uniterian Universalist Fellowship of Central Oregon. We are looking for volunteers to help make sure the event goes smoothly, specifically to help with catering and set up. This is a great opportunity to mingle with leaders in our industry and hear more about sustainability heroes in our community! The time commitment would begin around 3:30pm. Please contact Lauren if you’re interested.

Thank you!
