Help us get the job done!

If you would like to help out with any of OHA's programs, please fill out our volunteer sign-up. 

OHA is committed to protecting and restoring wetlands in the Okanogan Highlands, and there are a variety of areas that you can become involved in. You can help OHA protect, restore and preserve the Okanogan Highlands by becoming involved in OHA’s mine monitoring, education and/or restoration programs.

  • Creating educational props
  • Working to improve restoration sites (including planting, mulching, counting live plants, etc.)
  • Building tree cages to protect plantings
  • Writing comments to agencies about issues of concern
  • Trail building
  • Helping pull noxious weeds
  • Helping identify migratory songbirds during spring survey
  • Taking water measurements (OHA will train you)
  • Assisting with mural painting upkeep
  • Donating pictures related to our watershed
