The Western North Carolina Alliance is always in need of volunteers to help out with administrative duties, community organizing, water quality monitoring, invasive plant removal and many other helpful tasks.
If you’re interested in volunteering with us, please use the below form. Thanks for your interest!
Administrative Volunteer Duties: Volunteers assist with general clerical tasks, including mail sorting, answering phones and taking messages, making copies, filing papers, etc. Volunteers will also help with community events, setting up WNCA’s tables and sharing general information about the organization at community events.
Community Organizing Volunteer Duties: Volunteers help to mobilize people to contact decision makers and political leaders in support of environmental legislation, assist in building a network of people engaged in WNCA causes and help create messaging and campaigns around WNCA’s core issues.
Invasive Plant Removal Volunteer Duties: Volunteers help to treat invasive plant species after instruction from WNCA staff on how to identify such species, as well as how to use manual and chemical control methods.
Water Quality Monitoring Volunteer Duties: Volunteer tasks include working in streams, supplied with the proper equipment from the Alliance, to take water samples and determine whether or not streams used for swimming are safe for this use.
Steering Committee: Steering Committee (board of directors) members serve for two-year terms and set the policies and governance for the organization. If you or someone you know would like to be part of the leadership of a dynamic, grassroots environmental nonprofit, contact Co-Director Julie Mayfield at Julie@WNCA.org.
