Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities for the Bay


September 4

September 10

  • Attend a Save our Streams water quality workshop in Gaithersburg, MD with the Izaak Walton League.  Learn how to test water samples and collect aquatic insects and crustaceans that indicate water quality.

September 13

  • Learn how to Adopt-A-Stream in the Baltimore Area.  This workshop will give you the skills to keep an eye on your local stream and what to do when you see something wrong. 

September 17


  • Blue Water Baltimore is seeking dependable people to help lead tree plantings in the greater Baltimore area this fall.  No previous experience necessary!  In fact, this is a great way to get experience in both volunteer management and urban forestry. 
  • Become a Watch-the-Wild volunteer and learn how to make observations of nature to help the Nature Abounds organization keep records and understand how our world is changing.
