Volunteer with us

Fostering stewardship and growing capacity through fun, impactful volunteer opportunities.

The watershed district’s volunteer program supports its mission to protect, manage, and restore waters resources by engaging community members in stewardship opportunities. The district strives to create meaningful experiences for volunteers, while growing its own capacity to protect clean water. The 2017 program included three ongoing programs – Adopt a Dock, Master Water Stewards, and Service Learners. The district also cosponsored two volunteer clean-up events, and hosted its first-ever volunteer orientation and year-end celebration.
