Nisqually Stream Stewards Volunteer Opportunities


To complete your certification, Stream Stewards are required to complete 40 hours of volunteer service. We will email you throughout the year with opportunities to volunteer around the watershed. Email the contact person listed under each event to sign up or for more information. Afterwards, you can report your hours when you get your monthly email from streamstewards@nisquallyriver.org.

Stream Stewards who fulfill their 40 hours receive recognition at the following year’s Nisqually Watershed Festival and have the opportunity to share their experience on our blog to inspire future Stewards!
