Volunteer with ForestWatch
Volunteers of all ages are the backbone of our organization. Our weekend warriors are battling against invasive plants, tearing down relic barbed wire fencing, and picking up small pieces of trash that are harmful to young – and critically endangered – California condors. It’s our way of giving something back to the places we love, while getting our hands dirty and directly improving wildlife habitat and recreation areas in our local backcountry.
More than 500 volunteers are involved with ForestWatch, and our strength in numbers produces big results. More than 7,000 pounds of trash have been hauled off the forest by our volunteers, and more than 15 miles of old fencing have been removed from the Carrizo Plain National Monument. With the fences gone, pronghorn antelope and other wildlife are less vulnerable to predators, reclaiming the freedom to roam across this vast landscape.
