When you volunteer with PCEI, you are giving back to multiple communities in the Palouse-Clearwater region. You become a champion for sustainability, land stewardship, environmental education, and more. Our projects and programs are not possible without the help of volunteers like you. We take the time to couple your interests, talents, and availability with community needs and the needs of our organization to create a meaningful volunteer experience. Read on to learn about different ways to get involved.
Stop by our Nature Center on Tuesdays, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. to help out with seasonal outdoor projects such as trail maintenance, nursery plant upkeep, invasive species removal, and facilities management.
Our internship program is designed to give you experience in a workplace setting in addition to developing and honing your skills. For a list of current internship positions and descriptions, please visit the Internships page.

We love working with the University of Idaho Center for Volunteerism and the Washington State University Center for Civic Engagement. Find PCEI on Vandalsync or Cougsync to see a list of opportunities for students. Below is a sample of service days that we partner with them on:
- Martin Luther King Jr. Day– A national day of citizen action through volunteer service on the third Monday of January.
- Alternative Spring Breaks– Join PCEI during your spring break for a regionally-based service project.
- Saturday of Service– Annual spring service project day held in April.
- Serving Your New Community– Service opportunity that is geared toward new students at the end of August.
- Make A Difference Day– The largest national community service day that happens the end of October.
If you have another way in which you think you can help, simply let us know.
