Volunteer Opportunities

The Ashokan Watershed Stream Management Program (AWSMP) thrives on the work and dedication of our volunteers. There are multiple ways for you to get involved in AWSMP programming and help us achieve our mission.

Streamside plantings help stabilize the stream banks. All ages are welcome!

Committees and Working Groups

AWSMP has a number of different committees and working groups. All of the members who are involved in these groups volunteer their time and expertise to help AWSMP accomplish our mission and our program objectives. Please visit Working Groups and Committees to learn more and contact us if you would like to be involved.

These groups also help to develop volunteer activities. These events are publicized on our Facebook page and our News & Events listings.

One-Day Projects

If you want to get involved, but don’t think you can make the commitment to that serving on a working group requires, you might like to join a one-day volunteer event. There are streamside buffer plantings, stream clean-ups, teach-a-child-to-fish days, fairs and festivals, and other assorted events that we could use help with. The events that need short volunteer involvement will be posted in our News & Events listings.
