Pomperaug River Watershed Coalition volunteers are very special people whose donation of time and talents has an enormous impact on the health and well-being of our watershed and our communities. We salute and thank them for recognizing the importance of supporting our use of science, education and outreach in our collective roles of stewards of our environment. Join the Pomperaug Watershed team and make a difference.
Sample our Water and Survey our Streams
Work in the field. Document in-stream conditions, sample river bugs and water chemistry, and test for contamination in our streams and groundwater.
Create, Communicate, Teach
If you enjoy writing, photography, graphic and web design, fabricating exhibits or props for activities, or talking to others and teaching, our outreach program can use your skills!
Plan an Event
We host a number of fundraising and friend-raising events. If you enjoy working with others on events planning and management, we can use your skills!
Spread the Word
Help us share information via social media, in person, by phone, or personal email. Newsletters and postcards need to go out around our communities. Drop off a few in your travels (at the library, grocery store, coffee shop, etc).
Join a Committee
Combine your talents and interests and help steer efforts of the Coalition. Committees typically meet once per month and members work on specific project tasks between meetings. Committees include: Stream, Science, Education & Community Outreach,
Land Use, Marketing & Communications, Development Steering and Volunteer Recruitment.
If you are a college student pursuing an environmental career, consider applying for an internship at PRWC. Interns engage in activities that support our work to protect water resources through scientific research, education, and advocacy to make sure that the people who depend on this water understand the resource and take appropriate actions to preserve and protect it.
