Other Volunteer Opportunities
"When you cease to make a contribution, you begin to die."
- Eleanor Roosevelt
Whether your interests lie within the stream or beyond, the MWA has volunteer opportunities that will interest and challenge you.
- Some opportunities are year round, for example being a volunteer River Watcher, while some occur regularly throughout the year and include stuffing envelopes and stamping newsletters.
- We have daylong volunteer opportunities such as the Annual Clean Up and the Run for the River. You can sign up to volunteer for these events as an individual or with school, church or scout group.
- Interested in historic buildings? We're looking for members on our Asbury Mill Restoration Committee. Be a part of the Renovation of the Asbury Mill and learn what it takes to bring a project like this from planning to completion.
- Interested in helping in the MWA's Native Gardens and learning along the way? We are always looking for someone to pitch in with a little weeding, mulching, pruning, or invasive removal. No previous experience needed.
- Please call the MWA at 908-537-7060 to discuss these or other volunteer opportunities.
More Thoughts on Volunteering
"Though government has an important role to play in meeting the many challenges that remain before us, we are coming to understand that no organization, including government, will fully succeed without the active participation of each of us. Volunteers are vital to enabling this country to live up to the true promise of its heritage." - Bill Clinton
"Every problem that the country faces is being solved in some community by some group or some individual. The question is how to get connected so that the whole nation can solve problems. A volunteer is a person who can see what others cannot see; who can feel what most do not feel. Often, such gifted persons do not think of themselves as volunteers, but as citizens - citizens in the fullest sense; partners in civilization." - George H. W. Bush
