There are many ways you can help CREW accomplish its mission to protect and preserve the Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed - volunteer your time or talent, work as an intern for college credit or work experience, become a member of Friends of CREW, donate funds or materials to our environmental education programs, participate in our events, and/or serve as an advocate for CREW by sharing CREW with your friends and family or by supporting CREW through community or political action.
Our volunteers help to sustain CREW with their expertise and dedicated hard work. Our volunteers include our Board of Trustees and Committees, our generous hike and seminar leaders, our behind-the-scenes trail maintenance and road clean-up crews, research and species monitoring teams, office helpers, and special projects creators. In FY 2011, CREW’s volunteers put in over 1300 hours of time, valued at $27,000! THANK YOU!!!
Keeping track of volunteer hours is important to the CREW Trust for receiving grant money, for reporting purposes, and to recognize those who give of their time, energy, skills and talent. A special thanks to our volunteers who help us protect the watershed and habitat associated with CREW!
Internships at CREW

CREW typically has one or two interns each semester, and sometimes we need one during the summer. Interns help us with public outreach and our environmental education programs, leading field trips and assisting with special events. They also get experience working with field research and monitoring projects like the CREW Herp Study, maintaining trails, working with volunteers, and doing office tasks. Working with a cooperative project such as CREW gives our interns experience with multiple agencies and exposes them to a variety of career options. Feel free to call us to discuss internship opportunities.
