Volunteers play a critical role in maintaining the scenic beauty and biological richness of the Mt. Tamalpais Watershed. From improving trails, restoring habitat, and protecting endangered species, Marin Water has a variety of volunteer opportunities available to match your skills, interests, and available time.
To address health concerns about group gatherings during COVID-19, many of our volunteer programs on the watershed are on hold.
We are currently offering the following programs:
Tamalpais Bee Lab
In coordination with One Tam, the Tamalpais Bee Lab is expanding its monitoring to include Marin Water's watershed lands. The Bee Lab will be hosting five Saturday volunteer days this summer: July 3, 17, and 24 as well as August 21 and 28. For more information, or to sign up, visit One Tam's website: onetam.org/tamalpais-bee-lab.
Ready to get some fresh air and contribute to keeping the watershed clean? Join us for a watershed cleanup: We are looking for volunteers to remove trash from high-use areas, along waterways and trails. This work protects critical habitats and waterways—clean areas promote responsible behavior. We will provide trash bags and sanitized trash-grabber tools.
This activity is suitable for individuals or small groups from the same household or social bubble. All participants must follow strict safety precautions and social distancing guidelines.
Please email us at VolunteerProgram@MarinWater.org or call 415.945.1169 to sign-up. Contact us to schedule an orientation, and to pick up sanitized gear. Once you have completed the orientation, you may hunt for litter whenever you are out on the watershed.
Marin Water is collaborating with One Tam and partners like Slow & Say Hello in our new Watershed Greeters program. Staff and volunteer greeters are stationed at various locations on the mountain, sharing updates about park programs and events. They are a great presence and resource on the watershed, serving and engaging our community.
