  • Reducing turnover rate by up to 50%
  • Increasing productivity by up to 13%

You have a volunteer date. Now what?
Recruit Your Volunteers

We request a maximum of 25 volunteers per shift. Depending on the activity, we may request you schedule two or more shifts for larger groups. 

Each person is required to sign our yearly VOLUNTEER LIABILITY WAIVER. All minors must have a form completed by a responsible adult.

The Week Prior

Weather and other factors can make it difficult to predict the details of your event. Your point of contact will receive the exact meeting location, work details, and the contact information of your crew leader approximately one week prior to the volunteer day. We may request that volunteers bring their own tools such as work gloves, pruners, loppers, or battery powered drills, but if he/she does not have them, we have tools to borrow.

Please send your final head count to Beth Edsall at bedsall@beavercreekwetlands.org at least three days prior to your volunteer event.

If the crew leader needs to cancel due to weather, he/she will notify the point of contact. The point of contact will notify the volunteers.
