Volunteering at the Education Center

CRW Volunteer1_200pxThank you for your interest in volunteering at the Education Center. We serve over 30,000 people every year and the Heritage Library is home to 9,400 years of Watershed history. We couldn’t do it without the help of our compassionate, dedicated, long-term volunteers.

A variety of positions are open for all different levels of interest and experience. No experience is necessary. We will provide an orientation and training. Browse the volunteer descriptions to see how you can share the wonder and beauty of the Cedar River Watershed.
