We invite everyone to participate in our fun community-based events, including river cleanups, festivals, and education events. An educated and engaged community is a community that recognizes the benefits our local rivers provide for our families and our future. We always need volunteers to help us with our community education and outreach as well as adminstrative tasks. We do offer internship opportunities and we are always looking for volunteers to help us with our mission.
Contact April O'Leary, Programs Officer if you are interested in volunteering.
