Warm Weather Volunteers help protect the Spring Mountains in all sorts of ways and help support this fragile ecosystem through service work and public support. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up!
Enjoy hiking in a beautiful landscape while helping others learn about and protect the forest. Trail Hosts develop a greater understanding of the mountain environment while providing essential trail information that helps keep trails safe for the public.
Trail Hosts are encouraged to hike at least once a month, but many hike different trails each week. Training, first aid kit, radio, and additional items are provided to make hosting safe and educational.
GOMtCharleston programs often need a little help from volunteers, from staffing at an interpretive table, helping lead activities on Science Safaris, acting as a "tail" on our guided hikes, or many other opportunities throughout the warm season.
There are many opportunities to learn, as well as TEACH. Check out our calendar for scheduled educational programs and see for yourself the opportunities that await you.
Visitor Center Host
Like to help the public to learn how to recreate safely and give directions to trails and picnic areas? Join us to help provide information about recreation opportunities, how to protect the forest, and help provide education on Leave No Trace, fire restrictions and geography.
Litter and Invasive Species Removal
Whether you are an individual that wants to help keep the Spring Mountains healthy or a family, group, or business looking for a community service project, we would love your help! We can typically accommodate a clean-up Thursday through Monday and we provide the tools.
Major Volunteer Events
Each year, GOMtCharleston hosts large-scale cleanups, invasive species removals, seed gatherings, plantings, and more. Spring Cleaning occurs in May, and National Public Lands Day is in September, so please check out our calendar for specific dates. We always have something going on the mountain!
Group Volunteer Events
If you have a group interested in volunteering, whether as a family or Corporate group we can schedule the volunteer opportunity for you all to help us beautify the area and help restore it. Get with us to schedule a group or family event
