Raritan Township is looking for volunteers to help its’ Environmental Commission, Open Space Committee and Green Team. These groups seek to improve our environment, preserve open space, implement sustainable practices and generally make Raritan Township a better place to live.

Presently there are a number of volunteer opportunities available, details are below (but don't feel limited by the list- if you're passionate about another goal, we'd love to discuss it). For more information or to volunteer, respond through volunteer match or email us at enviromentalcommission@raritantwpnj.gov

  • Gardening: Help maintain the new Native Plant & Pollinator Garden and the two rain gardens at the Municipal Building. You can help by watering the Pollinator Garden over the summer, planting in the Fall and periodically weeding.
  • Food Waste Recycling : The recently launched Food Waste Recycling & Composting project at the Dvoor & Stangl Farm Markets is in need of volunteers Saturday and Sunday mornings (9:00 AM - Noon) to assist our staff by greeting visitors, talking about food waste recycling and composting and recording the food waste drop offs. No experience is necessary. You can sign up directly at: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C084CA8AE2AA0F4C61-raritan
  • Trail Maintenance : Raritan Township has over 1200 acres of preserved open space, some with trails and others where trails are planned. Volunteers are needed for trail construction, trail marking and maintenance.
  • Marketing: Inform the community about our events and accomplishments: promote us on social media, help with website design, contact local media.
  • Sustainable Jersey actions : Sustainable Jersey is an organization that promotes environmentally sustainable activities. They have over 100 'actions’ which municipalities can complete to earn points towards certification. Raritan Township is currently Bronze Certified. By completing additional actions, we hope to achieve Silver certification within two years. Actions include energy conservation & audits, storm water management, recycling, food security, community outreach and much more (for a full list of Sustainable Jersey actions see: https://www.sustainablejersey.com/actions/ ). Volunteers can choose those actions they are most passionate about.
  • Annual Road Clean-up : In the Spring volunteers are needed to clear Township roads of roadside debris. Working in groups, 1-2 miles of roads are designated for clean-up.
