Living Lands & Waters Events
Due to the current concerns surrounding COVID-19 and the Delta Variant, we are taking the appropriate precautions. Until further notice, we are scheduling Community River Cleanups town by town, but things could change quickly. We have volunteer opportunities at our tree nursery in Davenport, IA and our I-80 Restoration Project site in East Moline, IL. Sign-up links available below!
Thank you for your understanding. Stay safe & healthy!
Upcoming Volunteer Events
Tree Nursery Maintenance
We need plenty of helping hands at our MillionTrees Project Tree nursery to assist with some weed pulling so our oak saplings can grow and thrive! Multiple dates available - but we're flexible, so just reach out if there is a day or time that you'd like to stop by to help and we'll see if we can make it happen!
East Moline, IL
Invasive Species Removal
We need some helping hands at our I-80 Restoration Project in East Moline, IL, to assist with removing invasive honeysuckle and planting some native milkweed.
To follow state guidelines, we'll only be accepting nine volunteers per date at a first-come, first-serve basis. We ask that volunteers be at least 16 years old.
For more details and to sign up, follow the link below to our online registration form.
