Volunteers Make All the Difference

March 15th, 2024

Tualatin Riverkeepers was founded by a group of passionate residents of the Tualatin River watershed. These residents all volunteered their time to protect this place we call home, and volunteers remain the centerpiece of our organization. We continue to rely upon a dedicated core of volunteer leaders to help us project, restore, and enjoy the Tualatin River. Some of the roles you can play as a volunteer leader:

Paddle Trip Leader

Hop in a boat and help others enjoy the recreational opportunities that the Tualatin River provides. Paddle Trip Leaders lead groups on paddles, ensuring safe and successful trips while sharing personal experiences and serving as an ambassador for our work.

Restoration Crew Leader

TRK Restoration Leaders assist or lead on group volunteer habitat enhancement events throughout the watershed! TRK’s Volunteer and Restoration Manager provides the support and training for crew leaders, and once trained we ask that Restoration Leaders commit to a minimum of four projects throughout the year.

Watershed Watch Committee

The Watershed Watch Committee supports our advocacy work by providing expertise in a wide variety of areas. Our advocacy program would not be possible without our volunteer specialists, whose background ranges from ecology to engineering!

Watershed Ambassador

Our Watershed Ambassadors represent TRK at events throughout the watershed, from public events such as volunteer fairs and Farmer’s Markets to some of our own events. All we ask is that Ambassadors possess a passion for our work and a desire to engage with residents of the watershed.
