Volunteer OpportunitiesAs an all-volunteer organization what we do and what we accomplish is decided by our members. If you have an hour or 2 to devote per month you will be surprised the difference that can make. Each month we plan to list a few examples of the activities you can participate in and make a difference. Usually no special skills or experience is necessary. If interested in what is listed or to inquire about other volunteer opportunities please email us at NWCCG@comcast.net.
Opportunity: Send new members a “Welcome to NWCCG” letter. Average about 20 per month. Form letter and all materials provided. Time commitment about 1 – 2 hours per month. Location: your home
Opportunity: Assist in Monthly Program setup. Pick up and setup light refreshments. Expenses reimbursed. Time commitment about 1 -2 hours per month. Location: Usually Spring Valley Nature Center, 2nd Thurs of every month except during summer months.
