Our volunteers make it possible for us to maintain a clean and healthy river!
Volunteering with Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation is a great way to do something good for the environment, your water and the community.
If you are a new volunteer, we encourage you to create a volunteer profile, which will allow you to choose what opportunities most interest you. Once you complete your volunteer profile, you can start signing up for events!
We have a wide selection of volunteer opportunities ranging from one-time events to ongoing volunteer work. We are a small organization, and our volunteers are incredibly important to our mission, and to our ability to maintain a clean and healthy river!
Featured Volunteer Events
Gift Wrap for a Cause, Saturday, June 8 and/or Sunday, June 9, Charlotte, NC
Help us raise money with your gift-wrapping skills! Orvis Sporting Goods store is inviting us to help with the Father’s Day gift-wrapping rush. They will also be asking customers to donate to CRF! If you’d like to put your gifting wrapping skills to good use, join us the weekend before Father’s Day to raise money for our organization.
Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities
Start Volunteering Today with our Catawba Water Watcher App
A great way to help in a tangible way on your schedule is to download our app (Catawba Water Watcher App – just search Catawba Riverkeeper in your app store and it should pop up). The app will allow you to report pollution as well as trashy areas around you. You can use it any time you’re out and about, or you can block off some time to do some direct investigation of areas you think are in need of a more in-depth observation from our staff.
Learn more about our app and how to use it HERE
