Volunteer Work Days

Dedicated volunteers have been key to preserving the historic Empire Ranch House and Headquarters. Volunteer Work Days for hands-on preservation activities at the ranch are held on the third Saturday of February, April, June, August, and October, generally between the hours of 8am and 12 noon, followed by lunch. Volunteers work on general upkeep and landscaping of the Empire Ranch Headquarters, and assist with preservation projects. In addition to helping preserve and protect the Empire Ranch, you’ll enjoy learning new skills, and meeting with fun, like-minded folks! Additional volunteer days may be scheduled for special events or additional preservation projects. We invite you to volunteer with us and make a difference!

To volunteer for a scheduled Volunteer Day at the Ranch, it is necessary to register in advance so we can organize work efficiently.

Volunteers convene at the Visitor Contact Center for check-in, and a safety and assignment meeting. For new volunteers, please complete and submit a Volunteer Opportunities Form, and we will contact you with more details!
