Thank you for considering volunteering for CRBC! All volunteer efforts are much appreciated by our organization.  

One of the keystone pieces of our education and outreach program is our First Saturday Work Parties. Individuals of all ages can get experience planting native trees and shrubs and removing invasive species while learning about how we can improve watershed health. Check out our events page to find out what events are coming up, or see our 2016-2017 work party schedule below. If you’re part of a business or service organization looking for an opportunity to do good, we’ll be happy to set something up for you. We're also able to provide service projects for Eagle Scouts and potential interns.

Contact alix@clackamasriver.org for more information on ways you can help.
