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
