Volunteers, Interns and Student Assistants
The WATERS Collaborative seeks to engage students and community members in all aspects of watershed management projects - from planning and adminstration to field work and analysis. Please contact us if you are interested in working on WATERS projects - either as part of one of our ongoing programs or in your specific area of interest. Here are just a few ways that we could use your help:
Join Our Field Crews: We are looking for volunteers who would be interested in helping collect data and collaborate on projects by undertaking activities outside of the academic year and during critical periods of data collection. Volunteer field crews learn and undertake a variety of tasks under the guidance of our field crew leaders, project faculty, and staff. Contact us!
Desk Jockey With Us: Do you have computer or organizational skills? We need help with websites, websearches, and information gathering, . Contact us!
Docent Training: The SSU's Fairfield Osborn Preserve trains volunteers to lead educational tours. During a 5-week Naturalist Training Program, students and community members learn to lead outdoor educational activities at the Fairfield Osborn Preserve that teach about the Earth's interconnected systems at the Fairfield Osborn Preserve. Water is a common theme throughout the program. Contact us!
