Want to get involved at Orient Land Trust? Volunteers are extremely important to OLT. Please consider a donation of your time to help us work more efficiently toward the protection of the northern San Luis Valley’s unique resources and open space.
Summer 2014 Volunteer Hosts Needed
The Host opportunities listed below are all "full time," onsite positions that run for a minimum of two weeks, or more during our peak visitor season, between May and September.
Do you have an interest in astronomy and experience with telescopes? Then consider spending a month here at Valley View as an Astronomy Host providing astronomy education and assisting guests in viewing the celestial wonders above us (using our telescope, or yours). And with our clear, dark skies here in the San Luis Valley, we have some of the best star viewing conditions in the country! Time and interest permitting, Astronomy Hosts may also lead daytime tours of Orient Land Trust’s hydroelectric facility.
Orient Mine Bat Tour Hosts
Orient Mine Bat Tour Hosts lead evening walking tours to the Orient Mine to watch the bat out-flight, managing the integrity of the bat habitat and educating visitors on the history of the Orient Mine as well as the natural history of Mexican free-tailed bats. Time and interest permitting, Orient Mine Bat Tour Hosts may also lead daytime tours of Orient Land Trust’s hydroelectric facility.
Help us learn of your interests by filling out an OLT Volunteer Application. You can pick up an application at the OLT Welcome Center, or give us a call to have an application sent to you. Or, simply go to www.olt.org and click on “Get Involved,” print out an application and mail it to the address on the bottom of the last page. Thanks for Volunteering!
