California Conservation volunteers participate in small teams of both U.S. citizens and international participants, while working and camping on direct service projects for the National Forest Service, National Park Service and other land management agencies all over the state of California.

Highlights

Highlights

As a Californian conservation volunteer, you will have the opportunity to experience some stunning locations throughout your time on the project, and also during your free time – from towering redwood forests in Northern California to perfectly sun-kissed surf beaches in Southern California, this Golden State alongside the Pacific is a gem.

Location

Location

The project base is located in Boulder Creek in California.  From here, you can travel up to Napa and Sonoma Counties if headed north, or out to the east in the central California valley, anywhere on the central California coast, and south to Monterey, CA, Big Sur, and San Luis Obispo Counties.

Free Time

Free Time

During your free time, you can travel with new friends, explore endless beautiful areas, and socialise with other volunteers from the US and from around the world.  You can go to the beach, take a road trip, rent a car, go rock climbing, and do whatever you’d like to plan.
