Volunteer Opportunities

BDFreedom6macrosGreen Mountain Conservation Group is always looking for volunteers for many aspects of our programs. GMCG is largely a volunteer-supported organization and could not function without the dedicated service of our volunteers. Some of these volunteer opportunities include:

 Mailings and Flyer Posting: Newsletter, event invitations,  and fundraising mailings are completed 6-8 times each year.  Flyers are posted in 40 sites around the 6 watershed towns 6-8 times per year.

 Water Quality Monitoring: Volunteers needed! Help with deep water testing from your boat, macroinvertebrate sampling or chemistry sampling in streams, calibrating equipment, or delivering samples to labs in Durham and Concord.  Training will be provided.

√  Education Committee: Volunteers needed to assist with other educational events & programs in local schools, including but not limited to: GET WET! well testing program, VBAP macroinvertebrate sampling program, VLAP lake testing program, Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day, etc.  Folks can volunteer as a presenter, help with set-up, take-down, or refreshments. Volunteer to present to others in your town about GMCG’s work and mission.

√  Lake Hosting: We can put you in touch with organizations who need help with boat inspections to stop milfoil and other invasive aquatic plants from spreading into our watershed lakes Memorial Day through Labor Day.
