Sitka Conservation Society

For much of its history, the Sitka Conservation Society was entirely a volunteer organization, and volunteers are still essential to the work we do.  SCS relies on volunteers throughout the year for everything from solitude monitoring in the Wilderness to cleaning up after our annual wild foods potluck to writing letters to members of Congress.

We keep our membership informed of volunteer opportunities as they arise, but we encourage you to approach us about volunteering as well.  Please contact us if you would like to learn more about volunteer opportunities.

Here are a few ways to get invovled:

  • Enjoy Wilderness?  If you are going to be going out in the Wilderness and would like to gather data for the Community Wilderness Stewardship Project, or, if there is any other way you believe you could help with a project, please contact Adam Andis at
  • Like Kids?  If you would like to help with Sitka’s Alaska Way of Life 4H club by teaching a skill or being an adult helper, contact Tracy Gagnon at
  • Don’t Have a Lot of Time?  If you are short on time but still want to get involved, please take a look at our most recent Action Alerts and spend just a few minutes writing a letter on an issue.
  • Want to Lick Stamps?  From time to time we are desperately in need of volunteers to help sort and mail newsletter, write notes to members, or lots of other office related tasks.  If you can spare an hour helping out and want to receive our utmost gratitude, contact Clarice at
  • Like Free Events?  It is always helpful to have a few extra folks to set-up, take-down, and manage events.  If you would like to attend an event but can’t find the cash, we’ll even throw in a free ticket!  If interested contact Andis at
  • Want to get your hands dirty?  There are unlimited opportunities to become a Citizen Scientist and help collect valuable data.  Check out our Citizen Science page to find project you can get involved with.
