Ideas for volunteer opportunities for water engineers?
I had a discussion last week with some folks i work with about how we could get involved in the water community this summer. Rather than wading the S. Platte picking up chairs and diapers by ourselves, i thought i'd see about existing opportunities that are out there.
We're a mid-sized water engineering firm (~45 people) in denver that focus on surface water resources planning, water rights transfers, groundwater supply planning, permitting, etc. and we thought we'd like to volunteer our time for a river cleanup, educational opportunities, water related awareness (drought or conversation), river restoration, something like that.
Thought this would be a good place to get some ideas about volunteering opportunities coming up this spring/summer. I know there's often posts about volunteering, but trying to get as much info about varying opportunities as i can, whether its about past programs (CO Foundation for Water Ed, CO Env. Coalition, AWRA, AW) or more grassroots possibilities.
We're in Denver near downtown, so something around there would be best to get most to show up.
Thanks for any info. darren
