WMEAC relies on caring volunteers like you to carry out our mission of leading environmental protection. We are all part of West Michigan’s environment, so we must work together to protect and positively influence our natural surroundings. WMEAC volunteers average 10,000 hours every year for various programs, professional, and maintenance needs! We need you to volunteer West Michigan to protect our environment!

WMEAC needs volunteers indoors, too!
To keep the WMEAC engine running smoothly, we are always in need of volunteers of all ages that enjoy office management and financial work. If you have a few hours a week to help our Director of Operations with varied tasks from filing to Quick Books, we can put you to work keeping the WMEAC humming along. We can also use people that enjoy researching and working with archival material.
Reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your availability to take advantage of this opportunity!
