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!

It’s Riversweep season! See our spring 2018 Riversweep schedule below.

We are looking for three volunteers to represent* us at the event. We will have two volunteer shifts 1:00am to 3:00pm (2 spots) or 3:00pm to 5:00pm (1 spot) with a table filled with information about Catawba Riverkeepers and a fun stormwater activity for the children.
*For those new to tabling we have put together a cheat sheet that will help you explain what our organization does, some quick facts, and how people can get involved.
