The Superior Rivers Watershed Association is operated by volunteer members. The association needs a variety of volunteers to keep us running. Here are some ideas of existing volunteer opportunities with Superior Rivers.  Contact us (715) 682-2003 or send us an email if you’re interested in any of these opportunities.  We’d love to hear from you!

Can you spare a few hours each month?

Water Quality Sampling
Collect a water sample at the beginning of each month, run a series of tests from home, and send us the results.
Training and equipment provided

Serve on a Committee
Lend a hand with the newsletter, help organize events, assist with program development, fundraising, and more.  We can help you find a good fit for your talents!

Looking for less commitment?

Macroinvertebrate Sampling
Collect macroinvertebrates (aquatic bugs) twice a year (Spring and Fall), then identify them with other volunteers.
Training and equipment provided

Help Plan an Event
We work to get people in their watershed with presentations and field days.  Are you interested in birding?  Snowshoeing?  Canoeing and river clean-up?  Removing invasive species?  Let’s turn that idea into action.

Culvert Inventories
Take photos and measurements of a culvert near your home.  We have already completed inventories on 900 of the 1,100 road-stream crossings in the watershed, but there’s more to be done.
Training and equipment provided

Get to Know Your Watershed Stream Assessments
Learn how to evaluate river habitat, then survey a site in the watershed.
Training and equipment provided

Help in the office
Are you good at filing and organization or data entry?  If you’d like to support the work of BRWA from a warm, dry location, we can use some help in the office.

Have some ideas for us on this website? Have some experience working with web sites? We could use your help.

Newsletter articles
We publish our newsletter, Watershed Waves, quarterly. Contact us if you have an article idea, or you’re interested in contributing an article.
