We Need You!

Many of our programs and projects are bigger than the BSWCD staff can handle alone. Here are some of the volunteer opportunities that might be just right for you:

Lincoln Bilingual Family STEAM Night

November 20, 2019
5:45-7:30 pm
Lincoln Elementary Spanish Immersion School, Corvallis

Help us make Family STEAM Night accessible for all students and family members! The goal is to make this a “Spanish-first event,” so students and their families will be encouraged to engage in Spanish at each station. We need your help at the stations to present the activities in Spanish! You will support one of our English-speaking community partners.

Please share this request with anyone who might be interested!

Annual Native Plant Sale

Native Plant Sale - Crosson

In January and February we need plant sale volunteers. Volunteers are invaluable in the success of this event. You can pick up plants at nurseries, assist in sale site set up, help customers fill orders, and push a broom once the dust settles.
