Why Volunteer?

Being A Tourist

The FAM Tours! We provide volunteers a number of activities to participate in the day before our project work begins. Our volunteers have the opportunity to experience the local arts, culture, outdoor adventures, culinary options and enjoy sightseeing the local area.

Being A Tourism Influencer

Based on the work required at the project site and the preferences of the volunteers during registration, we break into groups and work hard for 6-8 hours. Work could include painting, landscaping, brush clearing, trail maintenance, building bird feeders or benches or constructing fences or signage posts.

THANK YOU to all of our volunteers through the years!
