Volunteer Positions

Water Samplers Needed, May – Oct 2020

Join the Citizen Water Monitoring Network  (CWMN) Team! Volunteers are needed annually to collect water quality samples in Dedham and Norwood, as part of the CWMN program. Sampling occurs once a month, on the second Thursday, from May through Oct. Training is provided.

We always need back up or fill-in volunteers to sample on days when our regular volunteers aren’t able to.

If you or anyone you know might be interested in helping us out, please email Declan Devine at devine@neponset.org.
