Volunteering is a great way to protect your lands and waters from invasive species and to get involved in your community. There are many different ways to volunteer with SLELO PRISM such as, assisting invasive species removals and restoration projects, aiding special projects like eDNA, and helping to survey for priority invasive species.
SLELO PRISM has over 100 volunteers who have engaged with us in some way and we’re wanting to thank them all!
As part of an engagement initiative we’ve developed a fun Volunteer Challenge where participants can join volunteer opportunities and earn prizes by achieving various “participation levels”.
