Volunteer Positions

Open Volunteer Positions

Willow Creek Stewardship/Adopt an Oxbow

We’re always looking for folks who are willing to get their hands dirty to help us do restoration work on the floodplain, whether it is planting trees, grass seed, pulling weeds, or picking up litter. There is also our Adopt an Oxbow program, in which volunteers make a commitment to spend a given amount of time doing restoration work on a particular oxbow, or bend in the river. Learn More Here.


Capturing images is essential to telling a good story. We often need photographers to take pictures at our fundraising and volunteer events and of the places where we’re doing restoration and other projects.

Grant Writers

There are a lot of cool things about being a volunteer grant writer. One is that it’s a great resume builder. Another is that it can be done on your own time from anywhere. We write a lot of grants to support our projects, and we have a lot of cool projects in the works. If you’d like to contribute to us by way of persuasion skills and crafty wordsmithing, consider being a volunteer grant writer with the Headwaters Alliance.

Science Camp – last week of July

During the last 2 weeks of July, we host the Willow Creek Science Camp, one week for 5-7 year-olds, and another for 8-12 year olds. In this interactive day camp, kids learn about everything from ecosystems to the scientific method. No experience is required, but those with teaching, childcare, or science education experience are highly encouraged to join us.

Special Events Volunteers

We always welcome anyone who can help us at our special events, such as the Runoff Runoff, Headwaters Mountain Bike Race, and more. Some things that special events volunteers do include taking tickets, serving food and drinks, manning aid stations, and helping with the setup and take down of our venues.

If you’d like to volunteer for any of these positions please fill out our volunteer form.
