Welcome! We are excited that you are interested in volunteering with our organization to help us meet our stewardship goals. We have many ways that you can become involved in our organization.  We always need volunteers for special events and reoccurring events like tree plantings, and special programs like the Water Quality Monitoring Program. Throughout the year we set up special events for groups including business, clubs, and universities.

Please email Kate Chapel, Senior Project Manager to sign up for an event or for more information on how we can assist you with setting up a group volunteering event!

Water Quality Monitoring Program 2022

This program will teach volunteers how to properly monitor a stream in the Tinker’s Creek watershed, show what conditions to look for that are cause for concern, and who to contact with questions and data. Each site should take about an hour to sample, and a trained leader will be at every monitoring event. The data will be compiled and logged into Tinker’s Creek Watershed Partners website and shared with our partners to monitor the health of the creek and to find sites for future restoration projects. Volunteers are encouraged to adopt a site where they take one the sampling every month for their favorite spot in the watershed. These data help us prioritize work and track pollution.

 

Check back in March for more information.  Monitoring runs from April to September.

 

Contact Kate Chapel if you’d like to adopt a site! [email protected]
