Volunteer Opportunities


Join Riverkeeper’s Volunteer Team! At Riverkeeper we appreciate and depend on the ongoing support our volunteers provide us with. We believe in the necessity and the right of community members to play a primary role in protecting their local environment. To put that belief into action, we offer the following volunteer positions in which you can help Riverkeeper and act on your passion for a healthy Hudson River free of pollution and protecting the quality of drinking water for over 9 million New Yorkers!

Please review the below opportunities and fill out our required volunteer form and note if you are interested in a particular volunteer opportunity. Opportunities vary throughout the year and range from public education to administrative support to community science.
