Ready to take your advocacy to the next level? Help us protect the land, air and water of the central and southern Appalachian region by volunteering!

We have offices in Boone, N.C., Charlottesville, Va., Knoxville, Tenn., and Norton, Va. Each office may have different volunteer needs at different times, including volunteer nights, help during business hours, or assistance at tabling events on weekends. Volunteering is a great opportunity to participate in our work, learn valuable advocacy and organizing skills, and meet new people!
