The Center for the Urban River is able to thrive thanks to the help of our dedicated team of volunteers. Volunteers assist the staff in day to day activities such as education programs, lab maintenance, park clean-ups, and office work. In addition to long term volunteering commitments, we also offer single day events for student clubs, community organizations, scouts, and corporate groups. Our volunteer positions are open to participants ages 14 and up, and are available throughout the year. For additional information please check out our Volunteer Brochure, or contact Outreach Coordinator Jason Muller at
