Volunteers are key to watershed improvement. Find a volunteer opportunity that fits your schedule and interest level.
As we adapt to the realities of COVID-19 personal, family, and public health is a top priority. While the watershed appreciates volunteers, staff are less available to coordinate with volunteers due to most office time spent working from home. Out of the options listed here, volunteer activities will be coordinated as interest and dedicated support provides. All volunteer activities are either conducted independently, outdoors with social distancing, or among members of the same household.
The Watershed Action Volunteers meets twice annually open to the public; in March and October. Contact us via email or at (651) 204-6070 to request meeting access details or discuss a particular volunteer activity. Meeting details may be found on the VLAWMO web calendar from the VLAWMO.org homepage.
