Volunteer Opportunities

OEC loves our volunteers! While our needs aren’t all that routine, we do occasionally have research projects or outreach events that we need help with. If you’re interested in volunteering with us, please send an email to karenr@oeconline.org describing your interests and including a resume or a link to your LinkedIn profile.

If you would like to regularly speak up for environmental protections, check out our Grassroots Action & Information Network (GAIN).

Other helpful volunteer resources:

HandsOn Greater Portland: A Portland-based organization dedicated to matching available volunteers with community projects. The mission is to find short-term projects for casual volunteers.

VolunteerMatch: Connects volunteers to organizations nationwide. Enter your zip code for information about opportunities in your city. Each opportunity includes time requirements and skills required.
