Volunteer Opportunities

Decrease Your Stress

Increase Your Confidence

Expand Your Connections

People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge.

Participate in Meetup Events!

Enjoy the outdoors while meeting new people and making a difference in the community. Cleanup events are held at least monthly. If you know of an area that could use some TLC, let us know at plikingclub@gmail.com. We would also be happy to provide equipment and support, if you and a group of friends would like to organize your own event!
