Get Involved - Volunteer!
Workdays often involve removing invasive plants and shrubs and/or planting native species. However, there are often less strenous duties, such as litter pick-up, available at all events.

When you check in you can assist on the project that is the best match for you. You do not need to stay for the entire workday which is scheduled from 9:00a.m. to 1:00p.m.

Fort Harrison State Park, Saturday, June 1 - Enjoy some time on the water while assisting in a great cause. This event will include an on-the-water cleanup of Fall Creek from canoes and kayaks and a land based cleanup in the woods along the creek. Afterwords, we will provide a free cook-out picnic lunch for all the volunteers. Paddlers with canoes and kayaks are encouraged to bring them and assist in the cleanup of the creek. Those without boats are encouraged to help on land. We will also have a limited number of canoes and kayaks to lend to those without their own boat.
