Volunteer Opportunities

Make a difference for Idaho by volunteering — it’s fun!

Whether you want to stay indoors or experience the outdoors, ICL has a variety of projects throughout the year that benefit from the support of volunteers from our fantastic conservation community. Look here for volunteer opportunities in your area as they open up and check back periodically for new ones.

Volunteering for ICL is a valuable way to contribute to the conservation community and Idaho. Without our amazing volunteers, we wouldn’t be able to do our work of protecting the air you breathe, water your drink and lands you love.

Central/Eastern Idaho (Ketchum ICL office)

  • Help out with events and outreach: We need your voice and hands in the community! Volunteers can staff tables at ICL and community events, attend meetings, lead hikes or participate in other odds and ends jobs. If you’re passionate about ICL and looking for a way to help out, this is a fun way to participate and we’d love to have you! Specific opportunities come up periodically throughout the year, so sign up to be on our volunteer list to get notifications of when they arise.

North Idaho (Sandpoint ICL office)

  • No volunteer opportunities at this time, but stay tuned for updates!

Southwest Idaho (Boise ICL headquarters)

  • Help out with events and outreach: Volunteers can staff tables at ICL and community events, attend meetings, lead hikes or participate in other odds and ends jobs. If you’re passionate about ICL and looking for a way to help out, this is a fun way to participate and we’d love to have you! Specific opportunities come up periodically throughout the year, so sign up to be on our volunteer list to get notifications of when they arise.
  • Help out with mailings: Each month, ICL sends out mailings. To accomplish these mailings, we need volunteers who can take home boxes of envelopes to address them as well as people to come into the office for mailing parties where we fold, stuff and stamp the letters. If you are interested in helping us with our mailings, sign up here to be notified when we need volunteers!
  • Become a steward of wilderness, trails and rivers: Our Owyhee Wilderness stewardship program in the spring gets volunteers out in our beautiful canyonlands. The South Fork of the Boise River stewardship program in the fall helps clean up this well-used river corridor by picking up trash. Our Adopt-a-Trail program works with Ridge to Rivers in Boise to maintain a section of trail in the Boise Foothills. Interested? Sign up here.
  • Be an ICL Advocate: Get ready to engage in activism by using your own voice and story. Lend a hand during the 2019 Legislative Session. Volunteer to be an ICL advocate and learn! Sign up here.
