Volunteer to help educate others about water conservation!
Residents across The Woodlands Township are seeking help with conserving water. These water heroes may already irrigate wisely, fix leaks quickly, and use low flow devices, but they want to do more. And, they live right in your neighborhood. Perhaps you know who they are; perhaps you are one of them. If that’s the case, how about joining in to help spread the message about water conservation to even more Township residents?
The Woodlands Township Environmental Services Department has launched a new program: The Watershed Project. It’s packed with training and volunteering opportunities. There are a variety of ways to get involved; participants can choose the ones they are most excited about. Opportunities include:
Water Conservation Education
- Learn how to conduct a sprinkler system audit and teach others in your area.
- Staff outreach booths at events, spreading the word about water conservation.
Working with Youth
- Assist with classroom and field study activities related to water conservation for student groups.
- Apply storm drain decals to raise awareness of water quality impacts from run-off from lawns and driveways.
- Learn about invasive plants in our waterways and help remove them.
- Train to become a water quality monitor, collecting pollution data for the State.
- Support classes, workshops and volunteering events by checking in fellow volunteers, handing out materials, or overseeing equipment.
Neighborhood Information Resource
- Organize educational meetings and other activities for small groups.
So, you see, being a resident water volunteer can be about more than just saving water in your own home. Increase your impact by helping others to do the same. Ready to get started? Come to our upcoming workshop and learn how to be our next water information resource.
The Watershed Project kick-off workshop is this Saturday, February 22, at H.A.R.C, 8801 Gosling Road, from 8 a.m. to noon. Register here.
