Volunteer Opportunities

Interested in Volunteering for the Loxahatchee River District?

The Loxahatchee River District proactively engages volunteers in the accomplishment of our mission, especially the accomplishment of various roles associated with environmental monitoring and environmental education.  While volunteers provide valuable services to the Loxahatchee River District, our volunteer program is meant to provide meaningful benefits to our volunteers, educational experiences, professional development and community service hours.

We have volunteer opportunities for both the WildPine Lab and the River Center.  All volunteers must complete a background check prior to starting any volunteer program.  All volunteers must be at least 18 years of age for the WildPine Lab, and individuals must be 14 years of age to volunteer for the environmental education programs at the River Center.

Please download and send a volunteer application to the program you are interested in volunteering for.  All volunteers will be required to complete an application, Liability Release form, Background Check and sign off on the volunteer procedures.
