If you enjoy meeting people and you love The Last Green Valley, the TLGV Ranger Program is for you!

TLGV Rangers help by:

  • Meeting and greeting people at TLGV information booths at regional or local community events, fairs and festivals.
  • Delivering or assisting with presentations to local organizations and community groups.
  • Hosting programs for TLGV Members and the general community, such as organizing a Spring Outdoors or Walktober hike or a specific TLGV member-only program.

The benefits of becoming a TLGV Ranger include:

  • It's fun!
  • Greater understanding and connection to The Last Green Valley
  • Free training and all necessary outreach materials
  • TLGV Ranger shirt
  • Mileage reimbursement
  • Free admission and parking to many of the fairs/festivals that we attend with our information booth
  • Flexible scheduling - volunteer when it is convenient for you
  • Easy and satisfying way to give back to the region you love.

In return, TLGV Rangers are expected to:

  • Be members of TLGV in good standing.
  • Attend an orientation session with the Chief Ranger.
  • Feel comfortable talking about the organization’s mission, message and benefits of membership.  Prior participation in at least three outreach programs or community events is suggested.
  • Commit to at least one community activity annually.
  • Work with staff to identify special events for TLGV participation, and community groups interested in scheduling a Ranger program.
  • Proudly wear a TLGV Ranger shirt and identification badge when volunteering on behalf of the organization.
  • Provide feedback on each outreach activity, and document volunteer hours and mileage.
