How to be an awesome volunteer:
1. Check out the trip offerings on this page before March 1st.

4. Be sure to enter the password again in the Coupon Code box in the right-hand column (under time remaining and above the trip name) on page 1 of check out to get your member's discount. Yes, we know it's a little clunky, but that's how the website gods designed this step.

How to be a super cool awesome volunteer:

How to be the coolest super cool awesome volunteer:
1. Follow the steps above.
2. If you've been on a PWSSF summer volunteer project trip in the past, try out a different kind of trip! For example, say you went on a marine debris trip in 2022, why not try out a trail work trip in 2023?
Would you like to volunteer but plan to travel by way of your own vessel? Please email us at The sign-ups on this page include transportation (either by water taxi or Forest Service vessel).

And, finally, we know plans change sometimes. That's why each trip has a wait list. When a trip fills, a waitlist will appear as a separate event below. If a spot opens, we'll contact individuals in the order they've signed up for the waitlist.

If you've booked a trip and must cancel, please email us at as soon as possible. A lot of planning goes into each of our volunteer trips, and we charge a registration fee to be sure you're committed to the project too. We do not offer refunds but will still send you some cool PWSSF swag if you must cancel.
