A non-specific introduction to Tualatin Riverkeepers' programs, the Tualatin River, and the various roles that volunteers can perform.
Our work to create a climate-resilient watershed is not possible without our volunteers. We recognize that not everyone has equal access to the Tualatin River. These trainings are part of our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion regardless of skill level or access.
Welcome to Part I of our volunteer series! Tualatin Riverkeepers hosts our volunteer orientation to introduce community members to our program and what it means to be Riverkeepers (existing members are also highly encouraged to join). We have created the training to be taken as a series. Before you can volunteer for your first Tualatin Riverkeeper event, we invite you to join us for a virtual volunteer orientation. You will be introduced to Tualatin Riverkeepers' program, the Tualatin River, and the various roles that volunteers can perform. Our volunteers serve as ambassadors to our mission to protect, restore, and enjoy the Tualatin River, so we want to give you the skills necessary to effectively care for the Tualatin River watershed, regardless of volunteer role or skill level. Once you've attended volunteer orientation, you can find your place at Tualatin Riverkeepers and volunteer in a role that most excites you! There is additional training for stewardship and paddle trip volunteers, and we will guide you on the next steps and how to register.
Registering for this event will reserve a spot on Tuesday, August 2nd, 2022, at 7 PM. While orientation is free, we require registration to distribute online attendance information. This training will occur via Zoom.
