Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy is a volunteer-driven, nonprofit organization that motivates, engages and inspires people to protect, preserve and restore wildlife habitat in Loudoun County.
Volunteers are the heart of Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy and the seeds to our success!
All of Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy programs offer a range of volunteer opportunities from leadership positions to special projects to one-time experiences. You can become involved in Citizen Science, Education, Conservation Advocacy and Habitat Restoration. These programs offer the opportunity to share your knowledge or to gain new skills.
Many of our regularly scheduled volunteer opportunities have been put on hold due to COVID-19. Please bear with us as we navigate these challenging times.
As in-person volunteer opportunities become available, we are only able to accommodate a limited number of people to ensure the health and well-being of you, other volunteers and our Volunteer Program Coordinators. At this time, we plan to fill these openings by inviting those who have expressed interest in the program area on their Volunteer Application so please be sure to submit yours today, if you have not already!
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or if you have any questions.
Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities
The following volunteer opportunities are available since they involve “distance working” individually. Guidance and assignments can be completed via phone or video conferencing.
Research local zoning ordinances as they relate to conservation and land use issues and/or attend monthly public input sessions of the County Zoning Ordinance Action Group. Conduct online research, interview experts, and/or review newspapers and other media to assess public awareness or response. Your written summary of the data will help the organization develop policy positions, guidance, or educational resources related to the topic.
Engage your local friends and neighbors to advocate on issues that affect Loudoun’s streams, forests, wetlands, mountainsides and meadows. Activities may include attendance at public input sessions and community meetings, writing emails to Board of Supervisors members, and drafting letters to editors. No experience necessary: This is a fun, hands-on way to voice your concerns and meet other conservation-minded people.
