Our Partnership: As the platform through which many of our volunteer opportunities are posted, LA Works has been a critical partner for the Center and plays a large role in our volunteer recruitment and management. Beyond our Habitat Restoration and Enhancement opportunities, we have collaborated with LA Works on a number of additional volunteer and advocacy opportunities, such as Plogging (pictured above) and our Environmental Advocacy Bootcamp Series. Additionally, LA Works regularly connects the Center with corporate volunteer groups. We are so grateful for their continued partnership!
