Johnson Creek Watershed Council’s Creek Crew Leaders lead groups at restoration events during planting season.
Our Creek Crew Leaders are a HUGE piece of our restoration work at Johnson Creek! We work with thousands of volunteers each year and with a small staff, we can’t function without the community support of volunteers like you to teach and lead in our restoration events!
Creek Crew leaders choose at least 3 volunteer days a year to help guide small groups of volunteers for our native plantings, invasive species and trash removal parties throughout the year. They are also a crucial element of our larger events such as our Watershed Wide Event (in March) and the Johnson Creek Clean-Up (in August).
JCWC’s Creek Crew expands our capacity for facilitating restoration events throughout the year – we couldn’t do it without you!
Perks of being a Creek Crew Leader
-Leadership and hands-on restoration experience
-Make friends from different backgrounds
-Reference for applications to college, jobs, or scholarships
-Gain familiarity with Pacific Northwest species
-Get a sweet Johnson Creek Beanie!
Training for Creek Crew Leaders will be back in January 2022, COVID willing. Please check back for updates.
During our one-day training we’ll cover running the registration table, safety talks, and tree planting demos, and send you home with a take-home manual and an awesome JCWC Creek Crew beanie! Creek Crew leaders help to facilitate a minimum of four restoration events during the planting season.
**Must be 18 or older to lead–but adult-kid teams are welcome–mother-son, father-daughter, mentor-mentee, etc. welcome!!!
