YOU can make a difference today-- by joining our team of our volunteers. We have a vision of a greener LA, but to get there, we rely on volunteers like you to help transform our region into a healthy urban ecosystem, one community at a time.
Volunteering with TreePeople is fun and rewarding. It’s also unlike typical volunteer experiences in that we empower YOU with the support, training and tools you need to be an engine of change.

FAQ - Volunteering with TreePeople
How do I get started?
We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities to plant and care for trees, restore our local mountains and to take care of our nursery and park. To get started, take a look at our volunteer calendar of events and register for an event that suits your interest and schedule. Once registered, we will automatically email with you with details and directions.
Volunteer opportunities are available for all ages with a few restrictions. Volunteers under the age of 18 not accompanied by their parent or guardian must provide a parental consent form at the event (English/Spanish) . In the Angeles National Forest specifically, volunteers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. We ask that groups provide an adult chaperone for every 10 minors.
Can I just show up at an event?
Registration is required for all events. We have to limit volunteer participation to ensure that we have enough tools, equipment and work for all volunteers. Please pre-register so that we know how many people to expect and can plan accordingly. If you plan on bringing friends and family, please check that everyone has pre-registered for the event online.
What if an event is full?
We limit the amount of volunteers at each event to ensure that everyone has a safe, fun and rewarding experience. If an event is full, please check to see if we have availability at another event or join us on a different day.
