“I am grateful for the efforts of the many hard working volunteers of The Blue Mountain Watershed Trust who make local watershed monitoring and protection possible. This is such a great charitable organization – its local, full of dedicated, highly committed people, who are making a difference about something so deeply important and fundamental to our environment. Thank you!”
— Betty Muise, Adult Education and Facilitation Specialist, Local Resident.
TAKE CHARGE OF OUR FUTURE!
We need your help.
The Blue Mountain Watershed is under increasing environmental pressure. The great irony is that our enjoyment of this place, with its stupendous natural features, is what is causing the degradation.
There are many ways to volunteer, many things you can do. Please look at these options and then complete the form at the bottom of the page.
Become a member
Please become a member. Yearly dues are not expensive: $10-student, $30-adult, $45-family. The more members we have, the more clout we have when we deal with government, organizations and developers. The more dues we collect, the more able we are to hire lawyers and experts when it’s crucial to do so.
Pick an issue
If you have a particular interest in one of our issues, that’s fine. We would gladly welcome your help in moving that forward.
Boots on the ground
Do you like to get out and get your hands dirty? We plant trees, we cut phragmites, we carry out water sampling and things like streambank restoration. Children welcome!
Volunteer your students
We welcome children of all ages. We can develop a wetlands program for you or have you out to one of our tree planting or other initiatives. High school students in need of community service hours can learn while they volunteer with us.
Put in an ongoing effort
Our Watershed Action Group committee members (and other committees) put in an ongoing effort to safeguard our wild and vulnerable places. They meet monthly, as well as when needed. Join a committee and help us move forward!
