Donating and Volunteering

Support Our Mission

The Living Earth School fosters deeper connections to self, community, and the world around us through meaningful experiences with nature and highly skilled mentorship.

LES teaches learners of all ages to be inspired stewards of the earth and resilient members of their communities. We want our students to learn the ways of nature, how it is all put together, how they can draw sustenance from it, and ultimately keep it in their hearts and minds as they navigate their human experience.

Donate Time

We are always looking for dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers to help us maintain the beauty of the places we love. We encourage anyone who has the skill set, knowledge or interest in supporting mentored nature connection for youth and adults in our community to consider volunteering with LES.

There are many ways for individuals of all ages to volunteer time and talent, including as a volunteer for one-time events such as community events or work days, in the woods as a Mentor-in-Training, on one of our Board Committees or as a Board Member.

We are looking for individuals who:

  • Create and foster connections within our greater community, particularly within communities where barriers to nature connection exist
  • Serve as visionaries and leaders while driving our strategic vision and goals
  • Guide and support our fundraising efforts
  • Have knowledge and background in areas such as: Non-profit accounting/financial acumen, Data analysis/statistics, Equity and inclusion, Event planning/execution, Non-profit governance, Grant writing, Small business or non-profit law, Marketing/public relations/social media, Operational leadership, Sustainable building and/or land management
