Volunteer with Sempervirens Fund

Our volunteer needs are diverse, from assisting staff in the office to helping with special events and field projects. Please email us at redwoods@sempervirens.org or use our online contact form to let us know your availability, talents, and volunteer interests. We look forward to hearing from you! You can also help us by becoming a volunteer Redwood Ambassador.

Upcoming Volunteer Workdays

Due to covid-19 and the wildfires in the area, we have suspended volunteer workdays until such time as it is safe to do so. If you would like to stay informed and be notified of any upcoming volunteer events, please sign up for our email list here.
