Empowering the Community

Throughout the year RiverLink hosts many volunteer events that are open to anyone who wants to help out. There’s no experience needed for these events, just a love of the river and a desire to make an impact. We also host special events throughout the year that can always use some extra hands. We ask that you register for any events you’d like to attend so we can ensure we bring enough supplies for everyone that wants to participate.

Volunteer Groups

If you’ve got a group of friends, family, or coworkers looking to volunteer we’d love to help you make an impact on your community! We often work with church groups, schools and local businesses to organize private service days. We’ll find a date and time that works for your schedule and a project that fits your groups abilities. It doesn’t matter if you’re new to the environmental scene, or a seasoned veteran, there’s always a way that you can lend a hand.

Adopt-A-Stream Volunteers

Supply Checkout

While we may not be able to send RiverLink staff to lead every volunteer group, we’d love to equip your team with the right tools to make an impact. Our volunteer supply checkout can empower you with everything you need to lead a safe and effective cleanup on your own. Our cleanup guide can walk you through the whole process of how to plan and lead a stream or roadside cleanup, and our staff is more than happy to answer any questions you might have.
