Are you interested in taking action to protect the Potomac watershed and enhance public use of its rivers and streams?


As residents of the Potomac watershed, we depend on the river and its tributaries for water resources and ecosystem services. The watershed also depends on the surrounding community for protection. At PRKN we believe citizen engagement is necessary in keeping the river clean and healthy.

There are many ways citizens can engage to protect their local environment. We offer volunteer opportunities in which you can help Potomac Riverkeeper Network protect healthy river habitats and promote safe water access. Whether testing water quality in our floating lab aboard Sea Dog, doing clean ups, attending public hearings, doing scientific or legal research, or helping out in the Georgetown office, there are plenty of ways you can contribute.

Please email to learn more about our available opportunities. Make sure to identify if you are interested in a specific volunteer opportunity.
