Sierra Club Loma Prieta Chapter Volunteers

The Chapter does as much as it does because many volunteers donate generous amounts of time to making it work. We can always use another pair of hands, and some of the opportunities to help are listed here. There are also opportunities with outings, conservation, and environmental politics. If you're interested but don't see your perfect job, contact volunteer.opportunities@lomaprieta.sierraclub.org.
