A good way to celebrate Earth Day this April is to volunteer at one of our events this month. We have everything from educating the public to getting your hands wet while checking the water flow data (if it ever rains!) to making cookies. Please take a look at the schedule below and sign up for something that works for you. Volunteers either need to sign a waiver or become a member to be covered by our insurance at events.
