Building renovations to begin soon! Volunteers needed

October 17, 2023

Now that our busy summer field season is wrapping up, we are ready to begin renovations of our building in Mt. Vernon! (See our previous newsletter article about this project). This new regional center for watershed protection will have space for a classroom/ meeting room, exhibits, water quality lab, offices, field equipment storage and more. The first phase of construction will be to finish the barn so that we can move in for next year’s field season.  

To bring our vision to life, we need your help! Do you have skills that could support our project? Our needs include carpentry, plumbing, electrical, sheetrocking, painting, basic labor, fundraising, and more. Maybe you know of a contractor who might be willing to discount or donate their services, or have a connection for materials?

If you’re interested in volunteering, please complete this short volunteer form. If you have other ideas to support this project, email
