Volunteers are a vital component of non-profit organizations, and opportunities abound at Kachemak Heritage Land Trust for people with any of a number of skills.
Volunteering is a fun and rewarding way to meet people who share your interest in land conservation, while enjoying the satisfaction of being actively involved in your land trust and learning more about our operations.
Much of the office assistance work can be done right at home if more convenient for your schedule. If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out and submit the volunteer information sheet or contact Anne at 235-5263 or Anne@KachemakLandTrust.org.
