VOC is now accepting project applications and training applications for our 2024 season! In case you did not receive it, I wanted to make sure that you all knew about it and had the relevant information and link to our application to apply yourself or help us spread the word!
We are excited about the potential to work with many partners statewide. 2024 will be VOC’s 40th anniversary as an organization and we are excited to host a special slate of projects to reflect the incredible work we have accomplished since 1984.
While applications are accepted on a rolling basis, we ask that you submit your application by September 15 to allow ample time for selection, scouting, and recruitment.
VOC can manage volunteers in many project types including: trail building and maintenance; developing and maintaining other recreational infrastructure; improving accessibility for parks, trails, and nearby nature; performing seeding, planting and erosion control tasks; habitat restoration efforts including noxious weed management and fence removal; wildfire mitigation and restoration; restoration of flood damaged places; deployment of crosscut and chainsaw crews; addressing urban air quality, heat islands and water quality; planting, maintaining, and harvesting urban food gardens and establishing new pollinator gardens; greening urban spaces; addressing environmental and human health in urban areas; community science data collection; and more.
