Home and Garden Show
WMEAC will be at the West Michigan Home and Garden Show at the DeVos Place from March 6 - March 9. Over the last few years volunteers have worked with staff to help with rain barrel workshops for 100 Rain Barrels and 'person' the WMEAC table in the downtime. Volunteering with us will gain access to the Home and Garden show free of admission! If you spent time with us in the past or interested in hearing more please email or call us to let us know!
Please email us here or call us at 616-451-3051 ext. 26.
Rain Barrel Drilling and Prep
You may not believe me, but they say Spring is approaching soon. Spring brings rain, and rain means stormwater so WMEAC wants to arm you with some gloves and a power drill to help us prep for our dozens of rain barrel workshops (and the aforementioned Home and Garden show). Email us if you're interested in some drill time with Becky, our Water Program Outreach Coordinator. Fun fact, WMEAC's 2013 Volunteer of the Year is a rain barrel volunteer!
Watershed Moments Needs a Motivated Volunteer(s)!
Have you ever wanted to host a podcast? Are an old soul intrigued by radio hosts?
Watershed Moments is WMEAC's radio spot on WYCE which airs four times a week in 90-second spots. If you have experience with audio equipment, interviewing topic experts, or editing audio clips Watershed Moments needs your skills!

Event Committee Volunteers Needed
WMEAC events include The Earth Day Gala, WMEAC Film Series, Women and Environment Symposium, Green Drinks, Grand River Green-Up, Mayors River Clean Up, and our Annual Meeting. All of these events need significant volunteer power from people like you! If you attend these events every year or are new to WMEAC we are always looking to grow our event team with passionate, detail-oriented, team players.
Please contact email@example.com if you would like to spend time with us to plan and prepare for this fun, educational, and inspirational event calendar for 2014!
Vanishing of the Bees, WMEAC's fourth film in our 2014 Film Series, will be playing on Tuesday, March 18th at 7:00pm at UICA.
Teach for the Watershed Volunteers
Thank you to those who were able to come out to the latest T4W training session!
Would you like to put on waders and teach children about macroinvertebrates in a stream? Reaching over 2,500 kids last year alone, T4W is quickly becoming a spotlight program here at WMEAC. T4W is ramping up to serve 4,000 kids this school year alone--so we need your help!
WMEAC is looking for volunteers to support and encourage West Michigan's young people to engage in the sciences to understand and articulate the value of our water resource. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in learning more about this growing school program.
WMEAC needs some additional hands in its office able to help with the phones and fulfill other clerical tasks. If you’re interested or have any questions, please contact email@example.com.
