Whether you have a few hours per week, a few hours per month, or few hours per year, we’d love to have you on our team as a Sonoma Ecology Center Volunteer!


As a volunteer, you’ll join others who share your love and concern for a healthy environment. You’ll learn new skills, and you’ll make a difference in the health and well-being of your home… Sonoma Valley.


We have volunteer opportunities in a variety of areas, including gardening and nursery work at Sonoma Garden Park (for more details, visit their webpage), assisting with our children’s environmental education program, helping our restoration and research teams, and assisting with administrative tasks in the office.
