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
“Catawba” Mike Memorial Cleanup & Cookout – Saturday, August 18, 9:30am – 12:00pm
Join us in honoring our dedicated volunteer, Catawba Mike at the Third Annual Catawba Mike Memorial Cleanup at Landsford Canal State Park. This is a Bring Your Own Kayak Cleanup. We will not have kayaks or other boats available. Lunch provided immediately afterward.
Riverside Fest – Saturday, September 8, 3:00pm – 8:00pm (multiple shifts)
We are excited for our second annual Riverside Fest at Riverside Marina in Belmont! Proceeds for the event will benefit CRF and our efforts to keep the Catawba River clean and healthy. It is a huge event with food trucks, local breweries, a live band, and kayak tours. We will also have a low country boil for VIP ticket holders ($30). Volunteers will help sell drink tickets at the door and manage the beverage tent.
