The Xerces Society's volunteer program mobilizes volunteers to protect wildlife through the conservation of invertebrates and their habitats by participating in community science, organizational tasks, and community engagement. Our volunteer Xerces Ambassadors conduct outreach by tabling at a variety of events, and other volunteer opportunities are available throughout the United States—including the community science projects Bumble Bee Watch, Nebraska Bumble Bee Atlas, Pacific Northwest Bumble Bee Atlas, Western Monarch Milkweed Mapper, and the Western Monarch Thanksgiving Count. Browse our listings below to find the right opportunity for you—everyone is welcome!
