VOLUNTEER – Spring Community Events Support!

April 1 - May 18

Free

Enjoy chatting with community members? Do you have some FOR or river knowledge (or want to gain some:)? Do you want to help advocate for our waterways?!

Join us this spring at one of our FOR outreach tables! We have SO many community events coming up. 

Having volunteers help at these tabling and outreach types of events is a HUGE help to us! It allows for more opportunity for us to connect with the general public on local environmental and river issues, fundraise, and share FOR and river education materials with our community. With so many events and programs, your support and volunteering is essential!

Below you can sign up to volunteer at one of our variety of upcoming events. At all of these events we will have an FOR staff member there with you so you are not on your own and are learning about FOR along the way!
