Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Boise Environmental Education.  You can help us educate our citizens about our unique local environment and ways to live sustainably within it.

Check out specific volunteer opportunities at the organizations listed or browse for other opportunities around the city and sign up to volunteer.  

Boise Environmental Education is a multi-agency partnership providing environmental lessons and programs to children and adults. The Public Works and Parks and Recreation departments cooperate to bring you an assortment of classroom lessons, field trips, regular monthly programs and special events designed to educate, inform and entertain.

We rely on volunteers to provide a wide array of services, including guided nature walks, assisting with lessons or events, photography, landscaping and gardening, and much more! These opportunities range from one time volunteer events to on-going year round or seasonal programs.

If you or your organization are interested in volunteering with us, you will be required to review the City of Boise Volunteer Handbook and sign a volunteer waiver prior to placement. Some volunteer positions involve working closely with children and may require you to undergo a criminal history background check.
