Other Volunteer Opportunties
Volunteering is one of the best ways that you can help protect your lands and waters from the impacts of invasive species. SLELO PRISM and our partners offer volunteer opportunities seasonally and sometimes throughout the year depending on needs. Attending any of the events hosted by SLELO or our partners counts towards achievements with our Volunteer Challenge
Check often as more opportunities will be added as they are received. If you are a SLELO Partner and have a volunteer opportunity to list here contact email@example.com.
