Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer and make a difference in your community

There are so many ways to get involved! Without our volunteers, we could not complete waterway cleanups, rain garden builds, tree plantings, invasive species removal, and even some of our programming like Creek Critters that depends on skilled volunteers.

When you volunteer with the Compact, you’ll meet other volunteers with similar interests and have a chance to get out of (or into) your comfort zone. Whether you’re in a creek removing litter, getting your hands dirty planting a tree, or helping with an event like Waterfest or Dragon Boat, your time is invaluable to us and we are so lucky to have such amazing volunteers that are passionate about working towards a better environment.

Whether you live in Nashville, Franklin, Murfreesboro, Hopkinsville, Cookeville or anywhere in between, YOU can be part of the endeavor to protect our environment. Click the link below to view upcoming opportunities!
