Volunteer

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 such as RiverFest, and Earth Day Kids’ Festival 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.

If you have any questions about volunteering with us, or you’d like to set up a private service day for your group send us an email at volunteer@riverlink.org
