The Watershed Center

The Watershed Institute for Environmental Advocacy, Science and Education is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to preserving and protecting New Jersey's waterways. Our beautiful Platinum LEED-certified building is open for both public and programmed visitation. We are looking for dedicated and friendly individuals to be the first face of the organization that our visitors encounter. Weekday Welcome Desk shifts are 9-1 or 1-5. Duties include, but are not limited to, greeting and orienting visitors to the building, showing our young visitors our critter collection, checking in participants for programs, running the nature gift shop, answering both phone and in person questions, and occasional office work (help with mailings etc). Interested individuals should be able to work independently, enjoy being the "face" of an organization dedicated to protecting the environment, and be willing to work with minimal supervision. We look forward to welcoming you to our Watershed family of volunteers!

Mission Statement

The Watershed Institute is dedicated to protecting and enhancing the natural environment in the 265-square mile region of central New Jersey drained by Stony Brook and the Millstone River. We are committed to improving community awareness of environmental issues, protecting water quality and quantity, and supporting informed land use decision-making.

Description

The Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association is central New Jersey’s first environmental group. Since 1949 we’ve worked to protect your water and environment through conservation, advocacy, science and education. We speak out for your water and environment, protect and restore sensitive habitats, test our waterways for pollution and inspire others to care for and protect the natural world. Our goal is to improve the health and quality of central New Jersey’s water and sustain a network of protected habitats for wildlife and people.

On 980 acres of protected forest, stream valley, meadow and pond, The Institute operates out of a Platinum LEEDS certified building which includes a nature center, summer camp, and extensive environmental education program. We work with towns, citizens, and businesses to improve land use decisions, conduct stream monitoring and restoration efforts, and advocate for better water quaility standards.
