Volunteer Agreement

Stewardship & monitoring of local resources depends upon people who care and are willing to contribute their time and skills to the public good. We rely on volunteers to accomplish aspects of many of our projects. As a volunteer, there are several ways you can help us to achieve our vision of an enhanced ecology of our watershed while having fun and taking part in a grassroots organization. Look for updates at the links below (coming soon) or check our online events calendar and news announcements to find out about our upcoming stewardship events.

Events

Watershed organizational events serve an important purpose–they foster a democratic approach to the management of natural resources by supporting the engagement of a broad cross-section of society. We are required to have a diverse representation of people on our board and in our membership. In order to accomplish this, volunteers are always needed for a variety of simple but critical duties–staffing the welcome table, tabling at events, helping with refreshments, scheduling speakers, creating or distributing flyers, etc. A few volunteers are still needed for our winter fundraiser–the Winter Watershed Soirée. Please call the office to get involved with organizational events. (541)767-9717.

When it comes to watershed restoration, there are several activities that really require an ‘all hands on deck’ approach. Whether it is cleaning up garbage in our natural areas or English ivy engulfing trees along the river, it is our mission to engage as many people as possible in these actions in order to provide a fulfilling experience that leaves people with a good feeling about their stewardship ethic. Whether you care about fish, future generations, or honoring religious beliefs, getting dirty doing hands-on projects is what we specialize in and we hope you’ll join us in our next effort!

Citizen Science

Citizen science is a new term but not a new concept. For example, the Audubon Society’s Christmas Bird Count began in 1900! As the accessibility of technology has grown, there as been a virtual explosion of the engagement of citizen science. The Coast Fork Willamette Watershed Council is thrilled to be supporting data collection by local residents and is interested in fostering more!
