CONC has need of volunteers to stock shelters with wood, move wood periodically from wood sheds to the shelters, build and maintain shelters, clear and mark ski and snowshoe trails, and occasionally help the Forest Service with signage, bridges, and debris management.
If you perform CONC-related volunteer work on your own, please send an email to email@example.com including what, where, when, who, and how long. Also include any damage or other information (such as wood supply) you feel might be useful. Occasionally perks are given by the club and the Forest Service so please give us your hours.
We communicate to volunteers through an email group. If you would like to be included in this email group, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteer opportunities for the Central Oregon Nordic Club
SHELTERS- In the Fall one of our main projects is to stock the warming shelters at these areas with firewood. This entails splitting and hauling wood from piles of rounds to the storage areas of the various shelters. This work usually takes a couple of outings in October to complete. At the time of these outings we send out an e-mail blast looking for volunteers.
DAY TRIPS- These adventures (whether ski, shoe or hike) are usually major aspects of our club. We have a list of trip leaders who are authorized to organize and lead official club outings. These people have been vetted, have knowledge of the area, some 1st aid training, and organization skills. They have access to our e-mail lists and the club’s Meetup site to advertise and call an event. However, we are always looking for additional volunteer day trip coordinators. To become one we would ask that you shadow an experienced leader to become familiar with our sign up and safety procedures, and our trip protocols. We would like volunteers to have a 1st aid course, and receive some training regarding safety and outdoor preparation. And of course we look for volunteers who know the area they wish to ski, shoe or hike.
