The SWCD is always looking for interested volunteers who want to support our mission and conservation in Hamilton County.
Upcoming volunteer opportunities:
White River Clean Up
The White River Cleanup is a county wide event sponsored by Carmel, Fishers, and Noblesville. The event has been re-scheduled after being rained out on September 8th. The Carmel/Fishers portion is held at the 116th St. Bridge/boat launch in Fishers on October 27th.
The SWCD is leading the planting of 2 very large rain gardens. We will be directing the work of volunteers (youth and adults) to plant ~1,500 plant plugs in two rain gardens. Assistance will be needed to help with planting but also provide direction and instruction to volunteers. Things like where plants go, how to plant, reminders to not step on planted plants, and general coordination will be most helpful!
The event takes place from 8-12 but we’ll be done as soon as all the plugs are planted. Volunteers would be needed starting at ~7:30am. Of course you would be welcome for as long as you are able to stay.
When: October 27th from 7:30-12 (?)
Where: 116th St. Boat Launch- enter via N. Eller Rd., left on Wapihani Dr.
