Volunteering while on vacation is not a new concept. Mission trips have long been a popular summer vacation activity for church and school groups. Today, the opportunities are stronger than ever, with new and exciting opportunities available for travelers to expand their horizons and give back to the community.
Our membership program allows individuals, families, businesses, and organizations to support the vital work that OCWC does on a continual basis in Oak Creek. We hope you will recognize the importance of this work and help OCWC attain its goal of protecting Oak Creek and keeping the waters clean by joining our membership.
Volunteering can take shape in many forms, so with each of us giving a small amount of our time – we are able to make a huge difference!
Every member of OCWC appreciates the value of time as it is our most precious commodity to give. We hope you will be active in your participation as a member, and know that your time and effort will help us collectively add another building block to the foundation of service we provide to the Oak Creek Watershed community.
Follow us online at our various social networks, including Facebook, to get updates on events happening throughout the watershed; policy items affecting our rivers; see beautiful pictures of Oak Creek and its tributaries; hear from our members; and more!
We love hearing from you and these networks are a place where you can join the conversation. We welcome you to share your own photos, videos, comments and more. See you there!
It feels good! You are putting your skills to work for a local nonprofit organization and, more importantly, for Oak Creek and its watershed. You are making your community a better place. AND you are learning new skills and gaining experience that is a great addition to your resume.
We work with people of all ages and abilities, from a local school group picking up trash for Creekside Cleanups to retired volunteers collecting water samples. We will do our best to work with your skills and abilities.
Some volunteer opportunities may require training. Information about training will be provided to you as needed. We have many training resources available online. Learn more HERE.
