If you’re looking for an impactful, on-going volunteer placement or a meaningful internship, you might be a great fit for our Mobile River or Redbud Field-Trip Programs. Volunteer teachers (“docents”) in the Redbud program deliver fun, informative lessons to students during field trips – all outside, on the natural grounds of LCRA’s Wilkerson Center for Colorado River Education in West Austin. Hands-on activities educate students about water science, groundwater, urban watersheds, water quality, river stewardship, and water conservation. Our volunteers include people from many walks of life – parents, grandparents, working people, retired people, stay-at-home moms and dads, college students, and more.

No experience necessary! This is an opportunity for anyone who is bilingual in English/Spanish and enjoys interacting with young people. Our training and mentoring provide you with all the skills and materials that you need to become an excellent docent. Program hours: Wednesday – Friday during regular business hours, minimum 4-hour commitment once a month.

If you are interested in volunteering in another way, such as Board service, communications support, or graphic design and editing, send us an email, and let’s discuss it.
