Volunteers are needed 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.
Crew 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.
Crew leaders are needed to help coordinate service projects. Pledge to support five volunteer events and you are eligible to be a crew leader and receive special recognition.
Single day volunteers are welcome too and make up the majority of our volunteers! The work is sometimes rewarding and enjoyable and sometimes wet and muddy, but always worthwhile. To register for the monthly trail maintenance/clean-up at Riverlands, click here.
