Program Committee Member Opportunities
Committee members work with a team of fellow volunteers and staff to ensure the program is working within the established mission, vision and goals of Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy; reach out to partner with other community organizations; coordinate people to carry out various program functions; schedule events; and, perform volunteer training when needed.
We have openings with the following program committees:
- Habitat Restoration

Please contact Volunteer Coordinator, Kim Strader, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information or if you are interested in volunteering for a program or becoming a committee member.
Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities
If you are not yet comfortable with in-person volunteering, the following volunteer opportunities 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.
