We can’t do it alone! We depend on thousands of dedicated volunteers each year to plant trees, remove invasive plants, clear trails, set up events, and more.  We welcome your time and talents.

Whether you want to use your skills in our office, work as a citizen scientist or get your hands dirty out in the field, we offer volunteer opportunities to fit your interests. Every hour of time donated to Raritan Headwaters supports our mission to protect water in our rivers, our streams and our homes.
