Becoming a Volunteer/Intern!

Land trust work is a rapidly growing sector of the environmental field. Individuals seeking full-time jobs with organizations working to preserve the environment are increasingly needed to demonstrate their interest and experience.  Volunteering is an invaluable means of accomplishing this requirement. Internships are an excellent opportunity for hands-on, grassroots experience with a growing conservation organization and often times can be realized as credits through a university or college program. Strong communication, writing, computer and organization skills would be required, with an interest or previous experience in environmental work a plus.


Utah Open Lands, is currently seeking volunteers for a wide range of tasks and activities, including organizing files and maps, and creating a database for protected properties; conducting annual monitoring visits to protected properties; compiling slide shows of completed and potential conservation projects for marketing purposes; assisting with newsletter production and distribution, and more.

Spreading the word!     

Tell your friends about us.  Even if Utah Open Lands had access to substantial funding, large scale preservation would be impossible without support from the general public and the conscientious stewardship of land owning families.  Donations to Utah Open Lands translate directly in to protected land—and are tax deductible.
