Get Involved

 

Are you interested in participating in conservation-related programs and activities? We’d love to work with you! Here are a few ways to get involved:

Internships: The RCD hosts an Environment Education Internship for college students. The internship primarily supports our Watershed Education program, the Watershed Connection, but interns will also have the opportunity to get involved in other RCD education and conservation projects. We will be seeking interns again in the fall – download the position description.

Wild Willow Farm hosts a 3-month internship each season. Interns gain hands-on experience with all the tasks involved in running a small, regenerative farm, and benefit from a share of the harvest and free workshops and courses. To learn more and apply, click here.

Volunteering: We hold volunteer events at the Tijuana River Valley Community Garden from time to time, such as garden clean-up events and planting projects. Check the calendar for upcoming events. We can also accommodate teams of volunteers for specific projects. Please contact us if you are interested in volunteering.

Volunteers are also welcome at Wild Willow Farm, where we host Open Community Volunteering every Wednesday and Saturday from 10:00am – 12:30pm. No experience or RSVP needed, families welcome. Click here to volunteer. 

Workshops & Courses: Join us at Wild Willow for a diverse array of fun and educational workshops – from cheese making and beekeeping, to canning and soap making. There is truly something for everyone! View the calendar and sign up here.
