Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The mission of the Adopt-A-Stream Foundation is to teach people to become stewards of their watersheds. That mission is carried out by conducting natural resource training at Streamkeeper Academy, producing environmental education materials, and providing local communities stream and wetland restoration technical assistance. Now, the Adopt-A-Stream Foundation is in the process of developing the first regional environmental learning facility in the Pacific NW with stream and wetland ecology & fish and wildlife habitat restoration as its central themes. It is called the Northwest Stream Center and is located on a 20 acre site in Snohomish County's McCollum Park (approximately 1/2 mile east of Interstate 5 off the 128th Street exit between Everett and Seattle).
Volunteers assist the Adopt-A-Stream Foundation in several areas including: fund raising, membership services, administrative functions ranging from data entry to preparing mailings, and assisting staff and adjunct professors teaching Streamkeeper Academy Classes. Many of our volunteers also "get their feet wet" in stream/wetland restoration projects planned by staff and helping us manage a native plant landscape next to the NW Stream Center's Visitors Building (we restored a three acre site from a parking lot next to the builidng...a great place now for wildlife).
