Fight Drought. Volunteer in LA!

All across LA, people are coming together to do their part to save water—taking shorter showers, replacing turf with native plants, and installing rain barrels. These are all great ways to save the drop and fight drought.

If you’re looking to take the next step, why not volunteer with TreePeople? Our city’s trees are thirsty and need your help. Each weekend we have opportunities for you to learn about our local ecology, connect with like-minded Angelenos and help make Los Angeles a climate-resilient city.

We recently updated our calendar with events through the end of the year. Don’t hesitate to sign up, as space is limited!

Here are just a few ways you can get involved:

Urban Forestry 


Join us in making your neighborhood a cooler place to live and play. Volunteers with TreePeople’s Urban Forestry program serve in neighborhoods across Los Angeles to plant and care for trees that keep our streets, schools and parks cool.

Mountain Forestry


Interested in spending some time in the local mountains? Volunteer in the Santa Monica Mountains and Angeles National Forest to restore this vital habitat. Healing these damaged forests protects against fire risk and benefits our local water supply!

Coldwater Canyon Park


Do you enjoy hikes in TreePeople’s 45-acre park, right in the heart of Los Angeles? Participate in a Park Work Day—or lend administrative support as an office volunteer. We’re also recruiting enthusiastic, friendly faces to spread the word about TreePeople in our outreach program.

We welcome all volunteers, and there is absolutely no experience necessary. We’ll teach you everything you need to know.

PS: If you’ve volunteered with TreePeople before come back and bring a friend! In fact, bring all of your friends, neighbors and coworkers! TreePeople is happy to coordinate group volunteering opportunities.

Let’s get outside! Visit TreePeople’s Events Calendar to sign up for a volunteer event today!
