RVCA works with many volunteers throughout the year to help restore and enhance our watershed. We offer a range of volunteer opportunities that require varying experience levels and time commitments. There may be an interesting and rewarding volunteer opportunity at RVCA that's right for you!

Taylor Creek was one of the streams we monitored last year and we found a lot of garbage and Himalayan balsam along the shores (photo below is our staff, Joey, holding Himalayan balsam). This stream is divided at this reach by St Joseph Blvd, we will be meeting at 9am at the Princess Lousie Falls and we will be splitting up into two steams, one upstream and one downstream of St. Joseph Blvd to collect garbage and remove any balsam spotted along shores.
Parking: There is road side parking on Taylor Creek Drive
Meeting location: Meeting will be upstream of St. Joseph Blvd at the Princess Lousie Falls
