We work year round on numerous sites including coastal dunes, public lands, and urban parks. Some sites offer beautiful ocean views, others a sense of wide-open wilderness, and others offer a clear connection between nature and urban communities.
The service activities that we coordinate are dependent upon the time of year as it correlates to our seasonal rainfall and native plants’ life cycles:
December to March – Restoration Planting – Transplanting plants from our greenhouses out to our various restoration sites.
April to November – Seeds and Weeds – Collecting native seeds in the field and removing invasive weeds from restoration sites.
August to November – Greenhouse Propagation – Sowing seeds in our greenhouse area at the Watershed Institute of CSU Monterey Bay.
Year round – Watershed Cleanup – Cleaning up trash and debris alongside water bodies in Salinas’ urban parks.
Whether reading to children, stocking shelves at a food pantry or delivering meals to home-bound seniors, there are many volunteer opportunities available every day.
Volunteers are vital to the strength and mission of United Way of Central Ohio, as well as to the strength of our community.
Faith Community exists to bring the transforming love of God to our people, our families, our neighborhood, and our world.
We are a neighborhood-based church in Central Hilltop in Columbus, Ohio. We seek to be a diverse group of people seeking God and serving our neighbors! We have programs for kids, teens, families, men & women. Projects include community clean up, tutoring, service projects.
In Baton Rouge, the early stages of flood recovery continue as homes are gutted, treated, and restored following the record rainfall flooding from August 2016.
In Detroit, volunteers will serve with partner community organizations and churches already working to bring stability and growth to neighborhoods that are as much as 75 percent unoccupied at present.
In New Orleans, we continue the work of restoring family homes in New Orleans damaged by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. We’ve made tremendous progress so far and the vast majority of New Orleans is now restored, but the sheer scope of the initial devastation means that there are still several thousand homes to go. The families we are working with today have been on the long road to recovery since 2005 but are still determined to return home.
