Lend a Hand
CAGA needs you! Several volunteer opportunities are available as follows:
Respond to inquiries from individual and groups seeking volunteer opportunities on the Greenbelt. Determine interests, capabilities, and availability of the volunteers. Coordinate volunteers with project and crew leaders. Communicate the association’s volunteer needs to members and the public in available forums.
Identify and define projects to enhance and maintain the Greenbelt. Plan, and coordinate with volunteer groups to complete projects. Project management skills and natural landscaping knowledge would be helpful, but not essential.
Identify grant opportunities to enhance and maintain the Greenbelt. Develop grant applications for government and nonprofit foundation grant opportunities. Experience in government and conservation would be helpful. Narrative writing skills and grant application knowledge are essential.
Native Plant Gardeners
Assume responsibility for a specific area, garden or meadow. Propagate native species and remove invasive species. Work independently or coordinate small volunteer groups. The ability to identify native and invasive species is essential.
Contact Scott Shepler at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help with any of these opportunities.
