It has always seemed to me that a love for wild places and conservation work go hand in hand. What are non-profits doing cool work in your area? What's something you've lead on your own? How have you gotten involved in protecting the places you love to play in big or small ways? Looking for inspiration!

Hi @JennyinAlaska, great question! It always feels great to give back to the wild places we love!

Take a look at our Local Happenings board to see what some of our non-profit partners and community members are up to with conservation and volunteer efforts. There are so many ways to give back and you can find volunteer opportunities or get inspiration from some of the events posted there. 

Hope this helps and thanks for lending a hand toward conservation!


I teach an Outdoor Ed. class. A big part of what we will do this year will be to focus on conservation. I took my 5-year-old to our local state park to help with cleanup. That was awesome, rewarding, and he enjoyed it.
