Volunteers are needed for picking up trash, planting, removing invasive plants and doing other needed work on public lands and to help at events such as Earth Day, National Public Lands Day, Mission:Clean Stream, Confluence Trash Bash and Race for the Rivers. Service days will be held at many sites, including Riverlands,in West Alton, Riverwoods in Bridgeton and many local parks near you.

Team members are asked to pledge to support three service events this summer. Members will receive gloves, a water bottle, and a t-shirt at their first volunteer event.

Team leaders are needed to help coordinate service projects. Team leaders will receive special training to support events. Pledge to support five volunteer events and you are eligible to be a team leader and receive special recognition.

Single day volunteers are welcome and make up the majority of our volunteers! The work is rewarding, enjoyable, sometimes wet and muddy, but always worthwhile.
