Volunteer with Us

Community is at the heart of conservation, and as we all know, many hands make light work! CalTrout volunteers are passionate about fish, water, and people and are looking to make a real impact.

Across the state we're taking a look at our projects and putting real effort into elevating opportunities for participation. We need your hands-on support to build community participation in our restoration, advocacy and engagement efforts across the state!

Complete the form below to be added to our volunteer database, with options to choose your interest areas and availability. You'll be added to our volunteer mailing list and notified when there are opportunities in your region. Commitment levels vary, with some opportunities requiring more in depth training, while others you only need to show up.

In-stream Opportunities with South Coast Steelhead Coalition

We have two exciting opportunities to get involved in our South Coast region! 1) Post-rain recon for steelhead in one (or more) of four high priority rivers: San Juan Creek, San Mateo Creek, Santa Margarita River, San Luis Rey. 2) eDNA testing in San Juan and Trabuco Creek: molecular biological screening for rare species over long stretches of river.
