Volunteer Hours 

Many Columbia members donate their time, energy, and resources to help support the local Pagan and Non-Pagan communities here in Oregon and around the world.

 

For those able-bodied we do frequent hands-on plantings and land stewardship activities. We also host fundraisers and events that can be accessible to everyone! 

If you have a volunteer or fundraiser opportunity that you would like us to consider please don't hesitate to contact us!
