5 Ways to Volunteer this Fall

What can you do for your watershed? VLAWMO has a variety of opportunities for group service projects and individual homeowners. Chances are there's an opportunity that fits your schedule! 

1. Adopt a Stormdrain


Cleaning your nearest stormdrain is the quickest, most convenient way to support the watershed. Click here for more information on how to get started. 

2. Adopt a Raingarden


Sometimes raingardens need a little bit of tender loving care. To keep our raingardens looking great and functioning properly, volunteers can spend a bit of time each season touching them up. Join a team of volunteers focused on a raingarden near you! Click here for more info.

3. Conduct a Stormdrain Clean-up
