Volunteers give over 1,000 hours of time to us each year!

Volunteers are very helpful to us and greatly appreciated.  Some groups volunteer for a day or just an hour; other individuals volunteer on a regular basis. Coyote Hill prides itself in its ability to find a project to suit your interests and skills. See below if you are interested in a group project or becoming an on-going volunteer and let us help you find your place in the Coyote Hill family.
If you have any question, please email our Community Engagement Coordinator, Caroline Curran: caroline@coyotehill.org.
