Environmental Monitoring

For those who are interested in getting outside and getting dirty! The NSRWA has multiple programs that help to monitor the health of our watershed.  We conduct both water quality monitoring through our RiverWatch program, and fish and habitat monitoring (river herring counts, horseshoe crabs, marine invasive species, stream gauge reading).

Event Support

The NSRWA hosts many kinds of events. We need volunteers to help us make them as successful as possible. Some examples of events we run annually include the Kayak Expo, River Clean Up Day, and the Great River Race. We also sponsor walks and paddles throughout the year and are always looking for people who are naturalists and paddle leaders to help educate others about the nature of our rivers and watershed.

Fundraising

We can’t accomplish our mission to protect, restore and educate about our watershed without much needed funding for our programs.  Our fundraising events include an Auction, Food for Thought, the Kayak Expo, and the RiverViews House Tour. If you are interested in serving on one of our fundraising event committees let us know!

Mailing Volunteers/Office Help

Mailings, mailings, mailings! Our newsletter is published two times a year and is sent to all of our 1500 members. There are flyers and notices of our many events, membership renewals and notices that need to be mailed. Join our dedicated group of volunteers that gets together four mornings a year to get the newsletters ready for the post office, come into the office and work with us here, or take a mailing home and work on it in front of the TV.

Professional Consultant Volunteers

Professional individuals or companies that provide pro bono project-based services, such as lawyers, scientists, business people, computer experts, etc. These volunteers work with the staff member who has oversight responsibility for the identified project.
