Other Volunteer Opportunities
"When you cease to make a contribution, you begin to die." -Eleanor Roosevelt
The MWA welcomes volunteers who would be willing to assist with our native plantings at the River Resource Center and nearby riparian sites. No experience is necessary, and all ages are welcome to work with our plantings. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com if you would be interested in helping out sometime!
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. Help MWA gather water samples and test for water quality along the Musconetcong River.
Interested in historic buildings? We're looking for members on our Asbury Mill Restoration Committee. Be a part of the restoration of the Asbury Mill and learn what it takes to bring a project like this from planning to completion.
Interested in helping in MWA's Native Gardens and learning along the way? We are always looking for help with weeding, mulching, pruning and invasive removal. No previous experience needed!
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
